## Lab 1 Part 3 - Dr. Sarah's Survey Assignment

Work on the answers to the following questions
in a word processor and save the file often
as yourfirstnamelab1.doc (ie something like
drsarahlab1.doc) from Word.
Note: **grammar and spelling are important**.
- You are probably taking this course
as part of a general education requirement. What skills central
to your intellectual development do you think society expects you to take
away from a college level mathematics course such as Math 1010?

- What do you think mathematics is (ie use your own ideas
to define mathematics)?

- Name a mathematical experience you had that was
rewarding for you.

- Think back to the first mathematical experience you had that
was destructive to your mathematical self-confidence. (We have
all had such experiences - even Dr. Sarah!)
Describe this experience.

- In the last question, you explored a negative
mathematical experience.
If you could rewrite your role in that experience in order to prevent it
from being destructive to your mathematical self-confidence
what would you change about
**your** behavior and reactions?

When you are finished, take out
Dr. Sarah's Sheet on the Main Web Page and WebCT Use,
and follow directions to enter WebCT and compose a **WebCT
message to Dr. Sarah** with your file attached.
Note that Dr. Sarah can read Microsoft Word attachments
Save the file as
yourfirstnamelab1.doc (ie something like drsarahlab1.doc) from Word),
but if you are working in a different
word processor such as WordPerfect or Works,
then you must first save the file in a different format.
For these word processors, use Save as... and choose
rich text format and then save the file as yourfirstnamelab1.rtf
(ie something like drsarahlab1.rtf)
before attaching.
