At the end of each problem solving session, the problem solvers reflect
on the process and note particularly good, bad, or interesting aspects
of their problem solving. Sometimes (but too rarely), they write their
reflections on this wall.
- Group work lets us bounce ideas off of each other.
- Consult the other groups in the class.
- After working on a problem for thirty minutes, take a break and then start
a new problem.
- Visial aids make solving problems easier.
- Computers are vicious, don't panic it may not be your fault.
- Group work also makes math anxiety less severe.
- Practice makes writing resolutions easier.
- Any day Sam brings treats (ie candy, chips,fruit) is a good day!!!
- It is good to work in groups, but always consider group dyanmics and
how they work for or against you.
The programmer types also write reflections.
- Sometimes it is easier to understand programming in Java if it is thought
about in a different context--such as Plato.
- Java can be easily used to solve math problems or do conversions ... it
is not just computer jargon.
