The following is NOT HOMEWORK unless you miss part or all of the class. See the Main Class Web Page for ALL homework and due dates.

- Do a stock market update #2.
- On the front board, mark off whether update 1 was a gain or loss and whether update 2 was a gain or loss by adding them to the relevant gain/loss columns.
- Use the syllabus to give yourself a participation grade out of 20. The average participation grade from last semester was 16/20, which is what is listed on the ASULearn grades. A perfect 20/20 means perfect attendance, turning in the non-graded homework, being prepared for class, actively participating in class discussions and activities, and taking at least one try of each ASULearn quiz.
- Message your self-evaluation on participation to Dr. Sarah on ASULearn along with feedback on group work effectiveness [if you feel you deserve the same grades as your partners, just say so. If not, please explain why you deserve a higher or lower grade and specify which project(s) this relates to and the name(s) of your partner(s).]
- Write down (to turn in) something you found interesting, disagreed with,
or had a question on in each of the 4 readings referred to in
Project 6

1. Adding up Fuzzy Math: Teaching the Basics

2. Quantitative Literacy

3. Creative Inquiry Lessons for Life

4. What is Mathematics Quotations and Readings [on ASULearn] ]

and 5. something from Project 5 to share with the class tomorrow. - So you will have 5 items total. Turn these in. Then you may use the rest of the time to work on project 6 for tomorrow or the final project (either in the lab or you may leave to work elsewhere).
