Chapter 1 – Working Together
Computers are everywhere. Watching television, driving a car, using a charge card, ordering fast food, and the more obvious activity of typing a term paper on a personal computer, all involve interaction with computers. For one day, have each member of your team make a list of every computer he or she encounters (be careful not to limit yourselves just to the computers you see). Meet with the members of your team and combine your lists. Consider how each computer is used. How were the tasks the computers perform done before computers? Use PowerPoint to create a group presentation and share your findings with the class.

Chapter 3 – Working Together
In any software application, each program is not exactly the same. Different spreadsheet programs, for example, may have different methods to enter formulas, use functions, and draw charts. Have each member of your team interview someone who works with an application described in this chapter. What specific program is used? Why? For what purpose is the program used? What does the interviewee like, or dislike, about the program? Would the interviewee recommend this program? Why? Meet with the members of your team to discuss the results of your interviews. Then, use PowerPoint to create a group presentation and share your findings with the class.
