Hello World

Read the overview at http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/LiquidCrystal. Wire up the LCD accordingly, including the brightness potentiometer. Type (do not copy and paste) the code for Hello World.

Save as LCD_HelloWorld and submit to the relevant handin folder.

Demonstrate your circuit and program to the instructor for marking.

Once you have your circuit and program working, experiment with some of the LCD commands so you understand what they all do and what the various function parameters are used for.

Temperature

Wire up the temperature sensor according to the instructions in the Sparkfun manual, with the sensor output going to an appropriate analog input pin on the Arduino.

Modify your program accordingly to indicate the temperature. 

Save as LCD_Temperature and submit to the relevant handin folder.

Demonstrate your circuit and program to the instructor for marking.
