<!-- Step 1: Explain that our component needs HTML structure.  Review the HTML below and highlight the accordion class.  Step 2 is found in the CSS. -->
  <p>Goal was to create a resusable functional component from the HTML commented out in the JS panel</p>
<div class="container home">
  <section class="secondary">
    <div class="accordion">


Step 2: Review the LESS syntax below. Explain that CSS is part of what makes a component reusable Note the panel styles for our accordion class.  Note that without JavaScript the panels would always be expanded.  We need to look at our JS for step 3  


* {
  box-sizing: border-box;

.container {
  max-width: 500px;
  width: 100%;
  margin: 0 auto;

h1 {
   font-size: 1.5rem;

h2 {
  font-size: 1.5rem;

p {
  margin: 20px 0;
  line-height: 1.25;

.home {
  .accordion {
    .panel {
      padding: 30px;
      border: 1px solid gray;
      .panel-bar {
        display: flex;
        justify-content: space-between;
        .panel-buttons {
          button {
            cursor: pointer;

          .hide-btn {
            display: none;
      .panel-content {
        display: none;
        margin-top: 15px;
      .toggle-on {
        display: block;
