M@rk's DEV








Why did you choose the concepts you did to create your problem set?
I choose these concepts to create my problem set because I feel that I have a better grasps of these concept than any other ones we had. I feel like I'm more confident on teaching someone a concept that i really understand.

How do these problems provide an overview of your best mathematical understanding of what you have learned so far?
I think that this project is a good measuring stick of the mathematical understanding of what i learned so far.It made me think that I still have a long way to go to become an expert but i will my best to attain that level.

Did you learn anything from this assignment? Was it educationally valuable to you? (Be honest with this. If you got nothing out of this assignment then say that, but be specific about what you didn't like and offer a suggestion to improve it in the future.)

This project was definitely a good experience. It was kinda like a review for the exam because you look back at the concepts that you don't get before and try to teach it to other people.What I didn't like about this project is that we are the first class to do this project. At first I really had no idea on how to start my project but when I saw Graeme's project ideas just kept clicking on my head. Overall, this was an excellent project because it pushes you to work even harder and explore the different applications of the concepts that you've learned so far.

MR. K,
I'm just going to edit this tommorow and post it with my podcasts.

Why didn't you like the fact that your class was the first one to be assigned this project?

From the looks of it, though I'm not a math person, it really seems as if you've spent significant time and effort to produce high quality work.

Well, Mr. Pass, I didn't like the fact that we were the first class to do this project because i had no example to base my work on and at first I really had no idea on how to start this project. I consider myself as a critical person so i want something to be like a guide for my project.thank you for the comment.

Hi M@rk,

I deleted the comment because I spelled your name incorrectly, My apologies!

I was waiting for your podcasts to hear your explanations! I thought they would be really good for auditory learners that you might be teaching!

Your chunking questions into separate slideshare files is very effective; learners are not overwhelmed and can easily locate each question. You really have done a nice job with cues and hints to help your learners.

In your reflection you mentioned: "it pushes you to work even harder and explore the different applications of the concepts that you've learned so far." I'm curious--was it the format of the project, the options for choice, the fact that you helped developed the rubric-- can you identify more specifically what it was that "pushed" you?

Best wishes,
Lani
