Introduction

Analysis Year 11 project Background knowledge In this project I will be creating a system to help plan the costs, amount of people and which people are going on the overnight trip. Here you will be taking the role of Sana, who is helping her French teacher (Mr Campbell) work out the costs of the week long French trip as he was experiencing some difficulty. On a day to day basis Mr Campbell has to create a letter about parent evenings for the trip, permission slips, dietary and medical requirements and remaining money. He also needs to work out the total in goings and total outgoings and make sure that the school doesn't make a loss but doesn't need to make a profit. He will also need to create a record of data about which pupils are going and aren't going and how we will put this in and use this to help create letters As Mr Campbell was experiencing some difficulty working out the costs using a calculator and paper and you had suggested that you would create a system that helps him work out the cost very easily and is a very user friendly design (maybe a user guide to help those who find this system hard and need some help) and you should ensure that anybody with little knowledge of computers is able to change certain amounts e.g. ...read more.

Paint is a good program to use because * I have a lot of freedom within this program * Can create my own lines and shapes and copy and paste parts easily * Can insert text boxes Microsoft paint also has many other good points but I still think I that this program isn't the most ideal because: * I don't now how to make it fit the whole page * Cant use word art, would have to copy and paste it There are also more problems with it and they wouldn't really influence my decision as I think that using paint is already to tedious from the above two problems so it isn't the most desirable solution. ...read more.
