    My several year experience at this forum has been that we generally have a difficult time (no, make that an extremely difficult time) giving helpful advice for your statement above. You and we are always far better off if you can ask as specific a question as possible.

    I suggest
    • that you discuss your assignment with your instructor, one on one.
    • that you break your big problem down into smaller problems and try to tackle each smaller problem on its own in isolation of the others before trying to combine all.
    • that if you then get stuck with a small specific , you come on back with your more specific question.
    • that you have a close look at the last link in my signature links below (and here) as it offers very useful suggestions on how to take the first steps in a confusing assignment.


    Much luck
