Today you'll need to finish your python quiz project.  This is the last chance you'll have to do it in class.  You'll still  have time to work on it at home.  Hopefully, you've already finished the mad-lib exercise.  Before you get back to work there are a few things you need to do first...

0)  Look up the definition of the following terms
    - syntax error
    - logical error
    - reserved words (particularly, reserved words in python)
    - arguments and parameters

1)  We'll talk about some common issues folks are running into on project 02.  Then the definition of the words you looked up in step 0.

2)  finish your mad-lib from yesterday.  Hopefully, you have this done.

3)  Finish the dropbox assignment on eClass.
   *I found a typo in the instructions at the end.  The grade scale for a D should be 60-69, not 60-70.*

We'll start a python quiz during the last 20 minutes of class. Not today. It will be Friday/Monday at the beginning of class.  It's only 12 questions long.  Here's what the quiz will cover:
    -if statements
    - conditionals (==, <, <=, >, >=, !=)
    - functions like range(), raw_input(), int(), string()
    - those words you looked up in step 0.
    - the difference between integers and strings
    - declaring and assigning new values to variables.
