1 : Creating a Stock Market Club Web Page
You are a member of your campus Stock Market Club. Because you have had a course in Web design
and Web programming, they have asked you to create a Web page that allows a user to enter a current
stock quote price and the number of shares of the five stocks your club has chosen to track. Your Web
page form should validate that the data entered is numeric and should display a total cost of shares
purchased, formatted with commas and dollar signs.
You should search the Internet for a widget or badge (such as Yahoo! Finance at finance.yahoo
.com/badges). Follow the steps for creating the HTML code to embed the stock quotes on your page.
Use your five stocks as the stock symbols. (Search the Internet to find the stock symbols you want to
use.) Use this page as a pop-up window that launches when the Web page is loaded.
2 : Calculating Your GPA
Quite often, students like to track their own semester GPA. Check with your school, but most schools
that use a plus/minus grade system assign the following values to letter grades: A+ = 4, A = 4, A- = 3.7,
B+ = 3.3, B = 3, B- = 2.7, C+ = 2, C- = 1.7, D+ = 1.3, D = 1, D- = .7, F = 0. Grades of W, I, P are not
calculated in a GPA.
Create a form that allows you to enter from four to six courses. For each course have a text box
to accept the letter grade. Next to the letter grade, have a text field that accepts the credit hours for
the course. Include Calculate GPA and Reset buttons. When you click the Calculate GPA button, the
number of grade points. At the same time, you need to accumulate the credit hours.
