The matrix is in spreadsheet form on NPS Google Docs, and has already been shared with the class. Choose a lab partner, or two, to work with (no group larger than 3 members). Make a copy of the file, then share it with the members of your group and with me. Type your responses directly into the spreadsheet cells. Name the spreadsheet: "Atomic Concepts LM: {block and group member names}" as the title.
