WTE: Declaration Presentation File - This presentation is designed to run in PowerPoint. Click the link, download the file and run it through PowerPoint. It will work with Google Slides but some of the presentation elements will be lost and text formatting may not be quite right.

WTE: Declaration Digital Analysis Guide - Students can complete the lab using paper but here is a digital option as well. This helps keeps things organized and saves the headache of dealing with math at the end of the lab as the Google Sheet will tabulate scores automatically.
