Last June I also taught this same course, MAT 1272, in summer school. Just before the final exam, 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, June 20th, is to:
- Read through ALL 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?
Extra Credit. For extra credit, write a response to one of your classmates’ comments. Do you have any advice? Be kind.
