Folder 作业3学习资料 by Professor Hugh Davis

Professor Hugh Davis为Seminar 1: The history and the future of computing准备了PPT,第一批同学可以以此为辅助学习材料,选择其中Timeline的某个小topic进行调研,制作小组PPT。也可以通过从网上查找材料确定自己感兴趣的点进行总结。

对slices做的比较好的2-3个小组,在seminar时向Hugh及其他同学做英文的presentation(时间为2分钟),讲解本小组的PPT内容。

希望同学们能够通过这个过程体会怎样查找材料、讨论总结内容、形成有逻辑有意义的PPT,并对PPT做英文讲解。
