• BIM I & BIM II

    A TREASURE CHEST

    OF OPPORTUNITIES--

    JUST FOR YOU!

    BIM  I  is a valuable treasure!  It will provide you with knowledge and skills in Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, and Publisher.  Skills in these areas will boost your success in other classes and will give you the confidence to compete in the ever-changing technical world of today.  It is a full-year class.

    Grading Policy:  The class follows the school grading policy of 40/60. A six week test will be administered at the end of each six weeks.

    Supplies:  You need a 1” or 1 ½” three ring binder and a small amount of notebook paper.  Space on the server is assigned to each student for daily classroom use.  We will engage in power point presentations the sixth six-weeks and you will need a means of storing larger quantities of data. I am requesting  you invest in a "flash drive" at the beginning of the year which uses the USB port.  This tool will meet your demands of storing data.

    Housekeeping Rules:

    ·        Never roll out of your desk area without permission.  Penalty = one week without your chair!    Big Price To Pay!

    ·        You are responsible for retrieving your disk or flash drive and taking it with you at the end of the class period.  Extra printouts or returned papers are your responsibility, also.  Students who have to clean up after you can earn +2 for each piece of trash and +5 for disk or flash drives left at your computer station.  These points are deducted from your daily grade.

    *   -5 for not logging off your computer; persons finding you logged on can collect the 5 points and apply it to a daily grade.

    *   Keep your language clean and refrain from inappropriate searches on the Internet.

    Year In Review: 

    ·        Keyboarding review (2 to 3 weeks) which will include numbers and numeric keypad—will boost speed and accuracy

    ·        WORD (word processing) concepts.

    ·        EXCEL (spreadsheet) concepts

    ·        ACCESS (database) concepts

    ·        PUBLISHER concepts

    ·        Integration of each of the above disciplines

    ·        POWERPOINT (presentations)

     

    2012

    BIM  II requires you to have successfully completed BCIS I and continues to provide you with advanced knowledge and skills in Word, Excel, Access, Powerpoint, and Publisher.  Skills in these areas are enhanced through integration between the programs. Projects are assigned requiring the student to apply his knowledge through practical applications.  A current event is assigned for each Thursday of weeks 1 through 5 of each six weeks.  The student must present a 3-minute oral presentation over a current technology subject.  The document must be turned in along with a brief written summary. A small research paper will be assigned both semesters, allowing students to demonstrate their skills.

    Grading Policy:  The class follows the school grading policy of 40/60. The current event is a daily grade. Since it is a graded assignment, it takes a big hit when turned in late. Late work is accepted. Large projects will receive individual daily grades and a major grade upon completion. A six week test will be administered at the end of each six weeks.

    Supplies:  You need a 1” or 1 ½” three ring binder and a small amount of notebook paper, USB jump drive, 5 folders for project presentations, envelopes (large & small), blank computer business cards and labels.
