Your first OpenLab assignments are to
- join the course group, and
- introduce yourself to your classmates (see below).
This assignment is due Tuesday, September 1. Each of these assignment will earn you one point towards the Participation component of your course grade. Late submissions will receive partial credit.
Assignment. Add a comment in reply to this post introducing yourself to the class. Your comment should be at least 2 paragraphs in length. In the first paragraph, introduce yourself in whatever way you wish. You could include your academic interests, including your major if you have chosen one; where you’re from and/or where you currently live; what you enjoy reading, listening to, watching, and doing in your spare time; and anything else you want to share (include your pronouns, if you wish). In the second paragraph, choose ONE of the following two topics and write a short response. Don’t forget to tell us which topic you chose.
Topics (choose ONE).
- Was math ever your favorite subject? If so, when was it? What about math made it your favorite? If math has never been your favorite subject, what about it do you not like?
- Sometimes people can recognize a time when their opinion of math dramatically changed either for the better or the worse. Tell us about it.
Extra Credit. Get to know your classmates! For extra credit, write a response to one of your classmates’ comments (use the “Reply” button under a given comment). Do you have similar interests? Did you learn anything? Do you have any advice? Please be kind!
