You can earn 2 participation points by posting a solution to one of the Exam #1 exercises. Follow these instructions:
- Choose one of the Exam #1 exercises and create an image (jpeg) file of your solution:
- If you are satisfied with the solution you handed in for your Exam #1, either take a photo of your hardcopy if you still have it, or take a screenshot of the electronic version you submitted.
- If instead you want to write up a new solution to the exercise, write it up and take a photo.
- Create a new OpenLab post; you can do by pressing on the “+” button at the top of the site and choosing “Post”
- Title your post as “Exam #1 Solution: Exercise #[number]”
- Add the image to your post: hit the “+” button on the RHS below your title for “Add block”; find the “Image” block, which will allow you to upload your image
- Under “Document / Categories” click “Exam 1 Solutions”
- Hit the “Publish” button
I demonstrated this process in class on Wednesday (Nov 18). You can view the Exam #1 solutions your classmates have already posted under that category.
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!
