Last summer I taught this course, MAT 1272, in summer school. Just before the final, I gave my students the following assignment:
Imagine that you are invited to speak on the first day of MAT 1272, to give advice to entering students. Write a paragraph…describing what you would tell them.
To see the assignment and the students’ responses, follow this link.
Your assignment, due next Thursday, 2/21/13 at 2:30pm, is to:
- Read throughALL the responses (there are 38 of them, but some are quite short).
- Write a reply to this post (1 paragraph) responding to all of the following:
- What advice seemed most relevant to you personally? Why? (you can copy/paste a short statement, or put it in your own words)
- Based on this advice, what changes can you make right now to help you with this course?
NOTE: Some of the advice is related specifically to the fact that it is a summer course, which covers the same material that we are covering but in the space of only 5 weeks. Feel free to ignore these comments, as they do not apply to us!
