# “WeBWorK #7 should be attempted only after completing OpenLab #11”

Hi everyone,

As several of you have pointed out, WeBWorK #7 (which was meant to be assigned a week ago and due last Tuesday) never appeared. This is my fault! I am thinking about how to include this assignment in the remaining coursework – but for now, you do not have to worry about it.

-Prof. Reitz

# In-Class Group Project Activity 11/6/14 – Make and Test Conjectures

*NOTE: As a component of OpenLab #8, each person should bring to class a conjecture or question about their assigned game.*

**Group Activity (30 min).** Get into your groups, arrange your chairs in a circle, and take 30 minutes to:

1. Each person should share their conjecture with the group. For each conjecture, the group should decide if they think it is true or false (or don’t know). The group should record their conclusion for each conjecture.

2. Choose one conjecture (or create a new one) to focus on as a group. Your goal for the next few weeks will be to try to prove or disprove this conjecture. Come up with several ideas about how you might prove it.

**Group work due after 30 minutes:** Each group will hand in a sheet of paper with the names of the group members, the date, and the following:

– Each member’s conjecture, along with a brief description of what the group thinks – is it true or false?

– Be sure to clearly indicate which of the conjectures the group has chosen to work on – or, if you have created a new conjecture to work on as a group, include that as well.

– Two different ideas about how you might try to prove the chosen conjecture.

**Reflection:** To be completed individually after group work is complete, and submitted on paper with your names and the date. Take 5 minutes to write on the following prompt:

Briefly reflect on the process of working in a group by responding to each of these points:

1. Describe something you learned.

2. Describe something you contributed to the group.

3. How did today’s work change your understanding of your assigned game?

# Week 10 Assignments

**Written work, **Due Tuesday, November 1th, in class:

Chapter 9: 3,4,5

**Chapter 8 p143: 3, 7, 18, 19

* **Chapter 8 has been extended to today Tuesday, November 11th*

**WeBWorK **– none

**OpenLab **– OpenLab #9 due Thursday, November 13th **at the start of class**

# In-Class Group Project Activity 10/30/14 – Puzzle Making

**Group Activity (25 min).** Get into your groups (group assignments appear below), arrange your chairs in a circle, and take 25 minutes to:

1. Share your responses to OpenLab #7. Compare your answers to the given examples (do you all agree on the solutions?). Now share your own puzzles with the group, and discuss.

2. Create three new puzzles, as tricky as possible (try to stump Prof. Reitz!).

**Group work due after 25 minutes: **Each group will hand in a sheet of paper with the names of the groups members, the date, and the three new puzzles created by the group. You do not need to submit solutions, but you do need to be able to solve the puzzles on request.

**Reflection:** To be completed individually after group work is complete, and submitted on paper with your name and the date. Take 5 minutes to write on the following prompt:

Briefly reflect on the process of working in a group by responding to each of these points:

1. Describe something you learned.

2. Describe something you contributed to the group.

3. How did today’s work change your understanding of your assigned game?
