First exam - Technological Processes and Computers

November, 7th
The first Technologies exam is beeing your worst nightmare this Halloween. It shouldn't be like that. Don't be so scared about it!. 

You only have to review everything we have been working with in our classes (regular class, workshop and computer lab). You have got everything handwritten or stuck in your notebooks and on this blog. We have been working with the same contents so many times and through so many different activities...! Just be sure you know the technological processes stages, health and safety rules, signs and computer basic components. 

Don't study things by heart! Just go over what we have worked with and you will be able to answer the short questions of this first exam.

It would be a good idea to bring:
  • Blue or black pen
  • Pencil (HB)
  • Ruler
  • Compass
  • Coloured pencils (red, blue and yellow)
If you have any question, please post a comment instead of sending me an email so that all your classmates could share the answers. I've just published two comments with your questions and answers about the exam and the homework for next Monday.
