Things that immediately pops up….
Having them able to use the TEXT to describe their variables and present their solutions neatly. We focused so much on the math work that I didn’t do enough on using the text component to explain the setup and solution. Sigh…. only so many hours in a class is one excuse, but it is an excuse, I should have done it. Goal for the next unit.
And another thing… having them use the HELP function in case they got stuck during a test.
They are also spending a long time (relatively speaking) per question on the Maple as opposed to the written portion. They finished up the written part (3 algebraic solutions, 1 graphical, 2 analysis questions) in about a half hour, then took another half hour to finish up 1 graphical & 1 algebraic question in Maple. Something is up there… going to survey them to see what they thought.
