2015 Spring

Monday 6/8

Went over bits of information needed to do quiz #4 and the necessity of reserving some time in class to check this quiz while sitting at a computer. Went over remaining schedule and quickly reviewed the requirements of the final project. Work time on final project. Heard #5. (May ask next time if anyone has a #6 for me.)

Tuesday 6/9

First five class presentations completed — no absences. As expected, they took longer than we planned, and we talked about the need to tighten up the presentations going forward. Primarily a work day on the final project. Some people may want to show me #6, which can be completed as part of the final project. Reminders about deadlines. Explained that I will not require class to show me an assignment #6, with the acceptable alternative being to include the main material from assignment #6 somewhere within the final project.

 Wednesday 6/10

Collected and reviewed quiz #3. Reminded that quiz #4 is due at the next class. Perhaps only 4-5 students have completed #6, but they have been urged to continue on to the final project, perhaps including features in that work that show that they can do the requirements of #6, too.. Work time on final project. Reviewed remaining schedule.

Thursday 6/11

Completed scheduled class presentations today.  Some work time on the final project. A few earlier projects were auditioned.

Previewed quiz #4 (which is due on Wednesday) for students who had questions. Assessed assignment #5. Told students that they have the option of showing my #6 on Wednesday or showing me how they incorporate it into the final project. Went over schedule for the remainder of the term, with special attention to making sure that everyone understands when the final exam session is. Work time on projects and suggested at least starting on final project today.

Update: Heard only some of #5 on my quick assessment — the first 2 1/2 rows.

Tuesday 3/10

Primarily a work day on the final project, with a few people showing me #6. (#6 can be completed as part of the final project.)

Thursday 3/12

Four of five schedule class presentations today. Each one took too long, especially the first two — but that is “par for the course.” We’ll move more quickly next time. Some work time on the final project.
