I gave the following to my students as a Final exam/project for fall
term. I have done other similar things in the past but this is the first
time that I've included to 1-2 page paper with language arts criteria as
well as mathematical justification. It is incredibile how seriously they
are taking it, how hard they are working and how creative the are being.


I have some good news and I have some bad news. First the good news.
There will be NO final exam for first semester. There will be a "Final
Project." instead. There are two major parts to this project. And for
each part, there will be two sub-parts. First part: By Wednesday, January
19th, collect 25 words from Chapters 1-4. Which words, you choose. There
are only two (2) requirements: 1) you must have 5 words from Chapter 1, 5
from Chapter 2, 5 from Chapter 3 and 5 from Chapter 4. Thhe final day.
You will be graded as follows. (You will need to bring your own pens,
colored pencils, markers, etc. and I will supply the paper.)
