Hi Grace,

Kudos on creating a professional looking project that is easy to navigate and read! I really like your graphic, that you've included the "Learning is Conversation" quote and your encouragement to others in your conclusion, especially the "aim high"! It's obvious that you expended significant effort!

In your conclusion, you mention that you've gained confidence and learned more than when the topics were covered in class. I'm wondering, is the first opportunity you've had to experience that rush and glow from completing a challenging project where you had to depend on you? And would you, despite the "hair pulling" feeling, welcome more projects like this that challenge and push your learning?

Best,
Lani

Hi Lani, it's Grace. I really appreciate your comments on my DEV Project.

As for the questions that you have asked, actually no, this isn't the first time i've ever done something that mainly depended on me. But I think that this was one of the most difficult because personally i've just really never been comfortable with math and the idea of doing a project where you're making up your own questions and making sure that the people that who are reading it understand it. I've done projects in other classes where you teach about something you know well, but my being uncomfortable with math just really made this project stressing.

I would welcome projects like this more because it's educational and you learn a lot if you push beyond your boundaries. I think that if you do just that, it'll give you more of an understanding about what you've learned and you become more anxious to learn about other things as well.

Again, thank you Lani for your comments =)

Hi Grace,

Extra congratulations are definitely due now that you've mention you've not been comfortable with math!!!! I would never have guessed that you were not a math whiz!

You mention how much you learn when you "push beyond your boundaries". I really agree that moving out of a comfort zone successfully can spur you on to more learning! Now that you've pushed those boundaries and been so successful with this project, looking back what might you change or would you?

Best,
Lani
