Grab a copy of the binary practice worksheet from in front of the printer.  Do it.

Some people need to finish their 3DS max snowman still.  These people will have most of my attention today.

Once you finish your 3DS snowman choose one of the following:

1)  Use one or more of the things we've learned so far (Photoshop, 3DS max, or HTML) to complete your academy project.  This mostly applies to 9th and 10th graders.

2)  Make a comic using 3DS max.  You make some sort of 3D character in 3DS max.  Create several different renderings in various posses.  Then use Photoshop to edit the images and add text.  See below for an example of what could make.  This example used 3DS MAX for the characters.  The backgrounds and text were added using Photoshop.

Notice a few things that will be required...
1)  Each frame needs to be a new rendering of your 3D scene.
2)  The characters facial expressions and/or body language are different in each frame.  I even changed the lighting in the last frame for more dramatic effect.

I just did four random renderings then tried to make it into a coherent story after the fact.  You should plan things about a little more.  This should be enough for you to get started.
