Final Response

Andrew Miller

0) Have you submitted responses for weeks 5 through 13?

1) How has your view of yourself in relationship to mathematics changed over the course of the semester?

2) For you, what are the most positive and the most negative aspects of the course? Would you suggest any major changes in structure or emphasis?

3) Comment at length on the concept of the paperless course. What are the advantages or disadvantages of this approach? In what ways could such an approach work in other courses?

4) Comment on your experiences with the technology used in the course. What can be done to make things easier in the future?

5) Describe your experience with the weekly assignments and the "response from Prof. B." feature. Comment on the public nature of these interchanges, and the possibility of linkings among student work and communication with the other class members. To what extent did you read the submissions of other students (and/or the professor's responses)?

6) Describe in some detail your activities as part of your final project team.

7) In the old days, the final project was mostly an individual effort, on the order of a ten-page paper. How would you characterize the experience of working on a team, and how did that affect your effort in the final project?
