- Show you toolsets and resources that will help you get started with responsive web design.
- Work through performance bottlenecks and solutions for optimizing your web site to accommodate this new method.
- Walkthrough a specific responsive design example and give you the CSS and HTML code to practice on your own.

- Be able to identify and apply the key components of the responsive web design (RWD) method.
- Build a working RWD prototype using supplied “proof of concept code” from http://www.lib.montana.edu/~jason/files.php.
