A complicated problem is difficult to solve as a whole. So you need to follow these steps:
- Divide it into small tasks.
- Solve each task.
- Combine the solutions.
For this project, write in your journal how would you divide the project into small tasks. There is not a right or wrong answer.
Remember: you’ll share your journal at your presentation time!
