Final DP Update
I thought that the independent research project was a perfect way to wrap up the year. I really liked how we were able to choose the project and choose how to present it. If there was something I would change about this project it would just be more time. I learned that a lot of math in nature has to do with one another as if everything is connected which has lead me to believe that everything is when it comes to math in nature.
Junior Year Reflection
In Math this year I feel as if i could have done a lot better with turning assignments in on time. I do feel a little better in my math abilities after taking SATs and moving on from that stepping stone. I, for the most part, am ready for math 4 next year. I am excited to see what Kyle will teach us.
2 POW's that I am Proud of:
I am proud of these POWs because they both made me think a lot. For example to try to figure a way to be the winning seat in POW 2 required a lot of thinking and trying over again and again to find a pattern of even just to be right for one of the rounds. I enjoy a little bit of failure because then when you get it right it just makes it feel so much better and that's what both of these POWs challenged me with. They were enjoyable to me because they were not too difficult nor too hard so it was the perfect challenge for me.
So far this semester was good, fun, but also difficult for some classes such as Pre-Clac. I struggled with the hard math concepts which made dislike math all together. Which in this case made me not try my hardest on the other Math class. I wouldn't say I completed my goals for this semester which was to do decently in both of my math classes which as I closer to the end of the semester I feel as if I could of done a lot better and persevered a lot more. I didn't met my goals because I procrastinated a lot and did not focus are persevere as much as I could of. Most of the POWs went quite well for me this semester. I worked quite hard on each and gave it my all. I did not do that will the rest of my projects or worksheets in Math 3 which i could of. I feel like I haven't changed very much from the beginning of the year beside get closer to figuring out what I would like to do after high school which is go to collage for business and marketing as well as sales for the ski industry and by taking all the classes that i do, some made me realize that certain class is not what I want to be working with for the rest of my life. Second semester I hope to accomplish to better understanding of math concepts and less procrastination.
