Pictured above are two of my favorite POWs (problem of the week) that I've had so far this year. The first POW Growth of Rat Populations was very logical, and there were multiple different ways that you could solve it. I'm proud of it because I put in a lot of effort into my process, and my write-up is understandable and in depth. The second POW Planning the Platforms was, in my opinion, the most difficult POW we've done this unit. Although I struggled with it I believe that I learned a lot, and am proud of my perseverance through this problem.
The report below was a joint POW/lab report between math 3 and chemistry. We utilized data we had collected to infer information about the Animas River in Durango through the use of math and chemistry skills.
One of the goals I set for myself this year in math 3 was to end the semester/year with a grade that I can be proud of. I assumed this would be easy for me seeing as last year I took advanced algebra which is essentially the same content we are learning this year, but I have had a surprising amount of struggles throughout this unit. As the semester has gone on I think the work has gotten easier, but at the beginning we were going over concepts that I had never practiced before, and really had to put serious effort into understanding them. I have definitely become more collaborative with my peers so far this year, due to the fact that when I'm confused, a peer can almost always help me out. Next semester I hope to continue collaborating on difficult math problems, and also dive deeper into the POWs that we are assigned. Meaning that instead of just finding an answer, I'll think about the process, and other processes I could have used, as well as why I got the answer I did.
