Instructions: Answers should be contained in either a single Word document or PowerPoint presentation. If using PowerPoint, only one answer per slide. Do not zip file before submission. Number your answers appropriately. If a question has multiple parts, be sure to number those as well (1b, 3c, etc.). If you are skipping an answer, number as usual and note “Question Skipped” or “Not Answered.” Keep answers in the order listed in this handout. For written responses, each answer should typically be around 200-250 words (1-2 nice paragraphs), well-written (proper spelling, punctuation, grammar, etc.), and cover the topic fully. Be sure to cite your sources (including the textbook)! If an answer requires a screenshot, please make sure that your screenshot shows all relevant information and is large enough to be easily legible.
