Dear Math 260 student,
Following are the detailed information on the
"Chapter Summary" activity
(1) This is a (60 points) activity.
(2) Form a group of 4-5 students.
(3) Choose one of the following chapters:
· ch 1
· ch 3
· ch 4
· ch 5
· ch 6
(4) You have to send me an email with the names of students in your group + the chosen chapter to from above
Note: NO REPETITION IN CHAPTERS, i.e. the first group to choose a chapter will be assigned to that chapter. Groups submitting later, will be required to choose different chapter. (Hurrrrrrrru up to choose the easy ones!!!).
(5) You are required to :
¨ submit – by email - a one A4 page chapter summary to the instructor (later distribute to all students in class on you presentation day).
¨ you may submit to all students a revision paper; or a formula sheet; or you may hang a poster; or any other creative idea.
¨ in 5 minutes, present your A4 summary paper in front of class to summarize the main points in the chapter; you may do a discussion forum on the chapter; or do a game; and/or any creative activity.
¨ in 5 minutes, a Q&A period where all remaining groups will ask your group a question form the chapter (each member of your group should answer at least one question). The question should require 40 seconds to answer. If your group answers correct, all members get 3 points. If not and the asking group answers correct, it's members get 3 points (so prepare good questions to gain the 3 points :)
(6) The evaluation will be based on the following:
¨ The attractiveness of the PowerPoint slides.
¨ The attractiveness of the method you use to summarize the chapter in front of the class.
¨ Participation of all members of the group and the good team work skills among them.
¨ The correctness of the information you speak in the summary and the correctness of all materials you submit.
(7) Due date to submit the one A4 summary page by email is 48 hours before the day of your presentation.
I wish you all a rich team work experience; and look forward to see your wonderful creativity and presentation.
