One thing that I have very significant as a student of problem solving is continually using the entry phase when given a problem. The entry phase allowed me to focus on the logistics of the problem. The following questions is what I found myself asking as a learner of problem solving: what are you trying to find/want to know about the problem, what do you know about the problem and what questions do you have? I not only used these questions in problem solving, but also in my other math classes at UNI. They helped think about what was important in the math question I was trying to solve. I have always struggled with comprehension, I know if I was introduced to this method when I was elementary school, I would have been successful in word problems. These three questions allow the students to break down the question and think before trying to solve. It almost slows down their thought process, which can be beneficial for all types of students.

Constantly having to ask yourself “why” and “how do you know your answer was right” was a consistent struggle for me. For this class, I could always explain my thought process on how I solved the problem, but was never able to explain why it was right. Which, I obviously still need to continue to improve my mathematical thinking as a student. It’s almost like when someone asked me why, my brain shut down and I didn’t know how to get passed it. But when someone else explained why the answer was right, it made a lot of since. It was almost

Intern met with resident K. Brown for the purpose of addressing her personal concerns and speaking with her about her community service hours. Kiara informed me that she completed her community service hours for the previous week. Intern asked her to verify the days she completes CS hours, and she stated Sundays and Wednesdays. Resident did express her frustrations by saying that she used to mess up with her CS hours, but she is really trying to do better. Intern advised her that another resident completes hers during that time, so she will have to do CS hours on Mondays and Thursdays or Mondays and Fridays. Intern also explained to her the importance of doing CS hours. It was explained that not only is this a requirement of the program,

I printed out this email and I highlighted the answers we were to bubble in. However, once we began to bubble in the answers there was a problem. The overwhelming majority of the students did not know their address. This created a major problem because I was given only one paper with the students’ address. Thus, I had to spend the majority of the time helping students with their addresses. Around 10:50 Tammy Becker walked in and told my class that we were being too loud (I was doing my best helping students fill out their address). She said we were to start the test at 11:05 am. As a result, I made sure we did start the test at 11:05 am. At 11:05 am the students began testing. I followed everything we were instructed to do during the PSAT.

The assigned video for this week's reflection assignment was presented by Iraqveteran8888 via youtube.com. The video is titled "History's deadliest bullet". Iraqveteran8888 begins the video by introducing co-worker of his at Moss Pawn, whom he notes to be a Civil War era firearm enthusiast. He introduces the coveted Minie ball round developed by French Army Captain Claude Minie. The design at the time I believe to be revolutionary in nature. Iraqveteran8888 states this round changed the face of warfare as it was known at the time. What made the Minie ball unique was the addition of "skirting" to the body of the cartridge. Prior to it's inception ammunition was a lead ball. They were not so dynamic when being fired as they would allow for gases

How I wrote my latter to me was mess because I didn’t have someone else or I didn’t spend much time reread. In this class I learn the main ideal and have detail it’s how we know what the stories is about and the main point of tell the stories. I have learn to think outside the box like having connections things and when you have connection with what your read or write then you would have more understands what your talk about.

Comp 101 was easier than I had originally expected; Comp 102 wasn’t much different. I came into this semester expecting it to be very similar to last semester, especially considering I had the same instructor. I was correct for the most part, the course consisted of very similar content. The biggest differences being the types of essays. In the first semester I wrote a Letter of Introduction, a Profile Essay, an Evaluation, and a Reflection. This semester I wrote an Argument Analysis, an Informative Report, a group Annotated Bibliography, a Proposal Essay, and a Reflection, which I am currently writing. Through writing these essays, I’ve learned that some require lots of time dedicated to researching, while others require wordsmithing to allow you to find that one word that gets your point across perfectly. Overall, my reading and writing skills improved, while my communications skills stayed that same throughout my time in this class.

I am a member of Service Knights, we do community work. For example, we helped tutor elementary students with their homework every Monday and Tuesday for about a month and a half. Me tutoring elementary students required patience as some children were frustrated with their homework and expressed anger toward us tutors. We taught them patience and that It sometimes takes a while to fully understand the material but in the end, they would be able to learn it. Tutoring the elementary students allowed many of us tutors to be hands-on, so many elementary students needed help and there were not enough tutors to cover each student, so we had to work together and thoroughly explain what is the answer they needed help with Math or English, sometimes

Going through my quiz, I really noticed that many of my answers were telling me that I really have a lot of habit and some necessarily were not so good. Like the fact that I am the type of writer that is always wanting to plan heavily on my papers, in the sense that I like to structure out my papers.

The purpose of this, my reflective essay, is to consider the journey I have taken to develop and create both the research story task and the story task. In the first task I was tasked to do an in-depth research on a topic that was trending or perceived as popular with a wide and varied audience. Accordingly, this would be a topic that could be seen to span a range of Social Media and established news sources. Then, in the second task, I was required to create a well-structured article based on the topic and crafted to meet the well-established journalistic standards of an established periodical, such as Time magazine. I now regret not adding an image to both support and establish the storyline. If

Not a single class should be disregarded because it is one’s responsibility as a students to produce laible work for every course we decide to take. AP Chemistry and Math Analysis were by far some of the most challenging courses I have taken as of now. I am truly interested in the field of science, and chemistry is an intriguing for subject; however, because I was not expecting the density of the course material in such rapid time, being able to fully grasp the content of the material came as a challenge to me. I can honestly say that for the first grading period of the class I believed I would completely fail the class. As well, coming from a normal honors chemistry class, averaging almost a hundred percent, I allowed my previous success to get to my head. Of course, I did not believe that AP Chemistry would be nearly as simple as normal chemistry, but I also could not image that it would quite different. After I learned that I could not maintain a decent grade without the time and effort, I began to get a hold of the class and improved substantially. Over all, I actually did enjoy the class due to the vast spectrum of topics it covered. As for Math Analysis, I genuinely believe that my lack of effort jeopardized my grade. I have never been a “math person,” but I have always dedicated time to all math courses in order to receive the grade I want. Nonetheless, because I was incredibly preoccupied with AP classes and attempting to maintain an A in those courses, I allowed

For this lesson, I based it off what the students in the clinical are learning throughout the year. I mainly see my students during their math intervention, and all of them have been focusing on diving multi digit numbers with and without remainders. The students have had difficulty with this subject when first being introduced to it, but as each week progresses, they are becoming more comfortable with diving. I believe my lesson would be beneficial for students to “wrap up” a division unit, and practice their skills on being able to divide numbers with and without remainders. Students ideally would have already seen problems in the Jeopardy game already in homework or practice problems that they have performed in school.

## Why Math Is Important To Me Essay

Math is one of those subjects that we tend to find the least accessible and the least applicable to our lives. After all, who is ever going to need to use Fermat’s Little Theorem or the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic in their everyday life besides a handful of individuals? The easiest answer to this prompt, then, is to say that math is going to influence the ways I create and craft budgets in my production management career. However, that answer is no more interesting that saying that knowing how to add helps you pay your bills every week. Perhaps the best answer to this prompt is not in what math can do for me on a practical level, but rather it is in what math can help illuminate for me. When I started this course, I believed math to be the essential foundation for our everyday activities (and that is still true). But as this course ends, I have come to understand math as more than just how to encrypt information online securely.

I have learned math along with my students at my placement. At my placement I observed my students using the basic operations with distributive property, partial quotients with division and much more. One of the really cool things I learned from my placement students is the box method which is done with multiplication. I at first thought it would be like lattice but it’s not. For example say if you had the numbers 56 and 6, you would draw a rectangle box and split it in the middle. Then you would write 50 in the first column on top and then 6 next to it. The number that goes on the other side is 6. So then you would multiply 50 and 6 to get 300 in the first box. After you would do 6 times 6 with the other box which is 36. Once you have those two numbers you add them together to get the answer. I was never taught to solve multiplication that way so that was something with mathematics that I learned along with my students. I do believe that thoughtful listening is one of the most effective qualities of a good teacher. I practiced this thoughtful listening when I listened to other people participate and show their work in class. I also practiced this thoughtful listening when I taught my unit lesson on math word problems. I took the time while teaching my lessons to listen to every student explain how they got
