THIS PROJECT WILL COUNT AS 300 POINTS ON YOUR TOTAL GRADE.
This quarter, your project will be to create an ABC book on Electricity.  You may
use Unit 4 in your book- Electromagnetic Systems as a resource but you are encouraged
to use outside resources as well.
This project must be typed on the computer to receive a grade higher than 80%.
The first 100 points will be given before the fourth quarter interim for completing a rough

each letter.  Also included should be your dedication, bibliography, and biography.

have its own page.

What is on each page:
     Capital and lower case letters must be included for each word.
