The purpose of todays lab is to collect some class stats, further connect what we have been
doing to the theme of what is mathematics, and explore the final research presentations.
Go to ASULearn and take
the Anonymous Advice for Next Semester survey.
- Tell me what you thought of the course?
- What would you like to be different?
- What was most helpful?
- Note that the mathematics department sends out its own formal evaluations
which are also anonymous. A portion of class tomorrow will be devoted to
those (and to research for the final project) so
bring a laptop, tablet, phone, or similar, that you could connect to the
internet. If you don't have such technology, let me know so I can bring
something for you.
- Read through the following 3 readings and
write down at least two items from each reading--bullet points are fine--that you found
interesting, disagreed with, or had a question on. So you will have at least
6 items total:
- Sell your stock using the
original purchase price, and fill in the relevant column on the board
- Read through the final
research presentations and ask me any questions as I make my way around. Write down one or more topics you would
be interested in researching, and begin to look for some mathematical connections. We'll look for more during class tomorrow.
