What are you PLANNING now so that TOMORROW will be successful?

Last week we had a little “fun” trying to use the ruler to set up a grid.  Regardless of where you are at today, we will be spending some time in class to double-check to make sure that our grids are set up correctly to ensure that we, in fact, can ENLARGE our image.

Now for those of you who are able to get the grid complete or may have been absent check out this link for some additional info on using a grid to enlarge a drawing:
