Learning Portfolios

The goal for your portfolios is to catalog what you learned this semester in class. It is helpful to write down what you’ve learned so you can refer to it later; more importantly, it is helpful to get in the habit of reflecting on your projects after they are finished.¬†For each problem we worked on, I want you to think and write about three things: description, analysis, and application.

Description

What did you do? Describe the process. Define the problem, identify the main issues. Try to describe how much time you spent on each part of the problem. What were the hardest parts? What was easy? Did you have a particular strategy for solving the problem? Did it work?

This section is the most likely place for images, spreadsheets, etc.

Analysis

What real-world scenarios are most like the problem? Are there things about the problem that would be different in a real-world application? Was the problem missing elements that would be present in a real-world application?

Application

What did you learn from the problem? How will you apply what you learned to the real world or to other classes?

Exactly how you organize your writing is up to you, but each post should include some writing in each of those three categories.
