**Deliverable** - A viewable website with professional content

Setup Wordpress - Research Journal

- About Me Page
- Blogpost: Game Review

**Deliverable** - Github account, ready for programming projects

By the end, you should have also “followed” my Github page, AND set up a mathquiz repository.

**Deliverable** - JavaScript Math Quiz Program, playable on Github

Setup your mathquiz repo on your desktop:

Please Read - How to setup your first repo

Read Chapter 1 of the Cookbook Text

- You will be using a fancy text editor for this project.
- Download and Install Sublime Text 3 (beta) for Windows: http://www.sublimetext.com/3

- For your mathquiz
- Write a good Prime Number Multiple Choice problem (1 or more)
- Write a Combination/Permutation problem for every type (4)

- Check into Github project mathquiz (should have at least 6 questions total)

**Getting gh-pages to host your program**
In your main directory, type…

git checkout --orphan gh-pages

Example: http://ffpaladin.github.io/mathquiz/

After you've finished everything, ask to see if anyone around you could use help.

If people around you are doing fine, then continue with the challenge (do these in any order)…

- Design a better grading scheme for the quiz. For example, currently, there is no way of even knowing that I'm being scored unless I get all the answers correct. This is a terrible design choice. Make a better one.
- Design an experience that will teach the user the mathematical concepts of prime numbers and permutations/combinations
- Go into your Wordpress and, on your dashboard, customize your site [Appearance]
- Write a blog that summarizes your experience today and post screenshots
