For the past few years I have taught this same course in the Fall semester (it previously had the course number MAT 2071). At the end of the course, I give my students the following assignment:
Imagine that you are invited to speak on the first day of MAT 2071, to give advice to entering students. Write at least three sentences … describing what you would tell them.
Your assignment, due at the beginning of class on Tuesday, September 7th, is to:
- Read through ALL the responses (there are about 30 of them altogether).
- 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 succeed in this course?
Extra Credit. For extra credit, write a response to one of your classmates’ comments. Do you have any advice? Be kind.
