Homework due on day 3 (July 6), unless otherwise specified

0) Math camp 1 topic.

By Tuesday June 27, as a group, decide on the Math Camp 1 topic. Upload in text file to Dropbox.

1) Zull

Be ready to explain and comment on one or two important ideas from the chapter of Zull we assigned you in today's class. If you are one of the people who read the whole book, then also be ready to explain and comment on one or two important ideas from the remainder of the book (ie not the chapters 2,3,4,6,12 which everyone read).

2) Evaluation of one MC1 non-content goal:

Design an evaluation plan for one math camp goal. (Each of you will be assigned one of the goals on your list.) Include both qualitative and quantitative (numerical) evaluation measures. Please be detailed on how you will obtain data, and how you will evaluate that data. For instance, if you plan to count the number of comments/questions: What indicates success? A given number? A given rate? An increase over time? If you ask a question: How will you ask it? (In class? To each student individually? In writing?) What answers will indicate success?

Submit your plan in writing by the beginning of Thursday July 6th class.

3) Individual response to 5-min videos:

Watch your taped sample presentation (this can be painful or embarrassing for any of us; we encourage you to schedule an instructor or classmate to watch it with you). Write an analysis (about 1.5 pages), including what you were trying to accomplish (your goals for the presentation), how well you think you did, and what you learned from the audience and instructor responses and from watching the tape. Conclude by discussing specifically how you hope to further develop or improve as a lecturer in the near future. Include time-codes (eg 04:20 - 04:30) from your video for at least two examples to illustrate your analysis. The videos can be found on the pedagogy powerbook in 004; you can use a memory stick to take them off. Contact Alex if you need them in another format.

4) Math camp 1 content goals.

As a group, once you have chosen your topic, come up with a list of mathematical goals for Math camp 1.

Recall your prior course analysis essay (see precoursework) is also due July 6.
