Hi Miles,

Your exceptional project is hid from view because of a bad link! The world should have access to what you've done! The link you have:
http://www.blogger.com/www.freewebs.com/developexpertvoicesmiles
It keeps trying to find blogger instead of freewebs. Can you fix it?

I copied the piece of the freeweb url to discover a project that illustrates, just as you said, that math permeates life! Very nice!

In your pre cal solutions, I love your inserting the 'teachers love, students hate" quote. You are quite the teacher as you lead your learner through the solution with good reminders, especially that "logarithms are an exponent". Each of your solutions is detailed and presented in a way that doesn't overwhelm your learner. The catapult graphics you've added to the crusades problem as you explain the graph add so much to the understanding of the solution.

I found your conclusion insightful, particularly:
"Organization, time management and mathematics are just some of the things that I think I've improved on because of this assignment. ..it also served as a learning experience that I ought to look back to."

You mention too: "I never though that I could possibly put so much effort into something." Now that you have done just that and you see what you've accomplished, how do you think that might impact your learning in the future?

Well done, Miles, well done!

Best,
Lani

Hi Lani,

Thanks for telling me about the problem with my link. I really appreciate your compliments on DEV.

Although personally, I think I could've presented different methods on answering my questions. Since some of them I think are too complex to understand.

You mention too: "I never though that I could possibly put so much effort into something." Now that you have done just that and you see what you've accomplished, how do you think that might impact your learning in the future?

With all honesty, I am a big procastinator. This project was that big challenge that I needed. It pushed me to work harder and actually think beyond what I normally do. Looking back at this project, I would be able to push myself to work harder, especially in University.

I'm actually glad that Mr. K gave us this project because he was able to bring out what I need to succeed in life; Perseverance and Determination...

Thanks,

Miles M.
