You have a big group project due at the end of the term It's probably a paper AND presentation. You need to set goals, assign tasks and determine deadlines.

Think about your project. Plan what you want to accomplish.
Your group is finally meeting! Are you excited? You should be excited.

C) Ignore the teammate that didn't do the work.
