Three Google Sheets Scripts That Help Teachers Save Time One of the great things about technology is that it can help use do things more efficiently which in turn means we get to spend more time on the more enjoyable parts of teaching, like working with students instead of working with paperwork.

GGF-001 Phoenix Gundam The GGF-001 Phoenix Gundam is an original mobile suit and one of the variants of GGF-000 Master Phoenix from the SD Gundam G Generation series which debuted in SD Gundam G Generation F. Its default pilot is Mark Guilder. Technology & Combat Characteristics The GGS-000 Phoenix Zero is believed to be the first prototype of the Phoenix series developed and was supposed to lead into the creation of the Phoenix Gundam. Not to be dissuaded efforts were instead concentrated on improving the GGS-000 Phoenix Zero, instead of abandoning it, and eventually this lead to the development of the GGF-000 Master Phoenix which was considered a success. While the Phoenix Gundam is considered a successful prototype it seems to have very few common features with other notable Gundams or even the GGF-000 Master Phoenix which it was also developed from. Later on the Phoenix Gundam would, at the hands of Mark Guilder, unleash its Full Power. Armaments Beam Saber Mega Beam Cannon Vulcan Gun Combinable Beam Rifle
