You are working on a C# program but you are putting VB code in the head section of the aspx page. If that is the handler for the button on the page then it would need to be in C# code and outside of the aspx markup. Also, remove the codebehind attribute in the Page directive if you intend on putting your code directly on the aspx page.

This is the form I have come up with.  Create a program that calculates an employee weekly gross salary based on the number of hours worked and an hourly wage that you choose.  This is my HTML document containing two text boxes and a submit box.  I have to submit the form to the Default.aspx file.  If this is correct, where do I go from here?
1. create a class paycheck that does the calculations.
or
2. Default.aspx

        <input id="Text1" type="text" onclick="return Text1_onclick()" /></p>

Is this "create a class paycheck that does the calculations" a requirement of the assignment? Because it is not necessary to create a separate class to do the calculation. You could just submit the page to itself, do the calculation in code behind and return the result.

1. You need a way to display the result to the user. The easiest way is to add an asp:Label and assign the result to that.

2. Nothing will be submitted to the server on your form because you do not have form tags. For asp.net forms, the form tags must have the runat="server" attribute.

3. In order to be able to access the input controls in the form from the server, they need to be either asp.net controls or standard html controls (like you have) but with runat="server" attributes. Example: <asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="Text1"></asp:TextBox> OR <input type="text" id="Text1" runat="server" />. The same holds true for the Calculate button. It should be an asp:Button control or an input with a runat="server" attribute.

4. You have onclick attributes in each of your controls. Why do you need something to happen when the user clicks on your textbox? You only want to submit the form when the user clicks the button.

The form must be setup correctly before you can proceed to the server side calculation. You can post your updated form again if you have any more questions.
