Unit 1 - How can I pull my own weight?

Investigation Briefing

Your "Athlete in Training" wiki page will become the location for all team research, information, and references. Team members will use this space to post their finding on nutrition, cardiovascular exercise, weight training, and all other video related content. The wiki page will house the teams responses to the various part of the investigation stage including the Design Brief, Design Specifications, potential Product Evaluation suggestions, and Works Cited references. Information from here can be used/printed out to fulfill the requirements of Ms. Sokol's knowledge component and rubric. Below you will find links to your teams "Athlete in Training" pages, the Investigation Rubric (including any task specific criteria needed to be fulfilled) and copies of the questions needing to be answered on your teams wiki page.

(*At the end of class on September 7th, your Design Tech instructor will give you a temporary grade for your "Athlete in Training" wiki page. This temporary grade will only be an indication of what you would earn if no more work was done on the page. The page will be regraded after the product is due on September 20th. Any changes made between the 7th and the 20th will affect the final grade given for the investigation stage.

**Multiple people can edit a wiki at once, provided they edit different parts of the wiki. In the event that two or more people work on the wiki in the same area at the same time, which ever person saves out of edit mode first, will have their changes lost. Be sure to edit different parts of the wiki page if you find you need to edit at the same time. Using the discussion tab to determine who will be responsible for what can help a lot!)
