Welcome to the Masterman Math Images page for 2013! Masterman students and the teachers, professors, and college students working with them can use this space to keep each other up-to-date on projects and feedback.
How Does this Page Work?
This is a place for the Masterman Math Images students to say what they're working on and thinking about. Students can post what they're proud of, questions they have, areas of confusion, or material on which they want feedback. Mr. Taranta, Diana Patton, and others from both Swarthmore College and the Math Forum will respond to them as quickly as possible. There shouldn't be any long conversations posted on this page; simple explanations or requests and brief responses or statements like, "I posted on your comments page," are all we need here.
Students, this page has a section for each person or group working on a project this semester. Edit the space under your heading with brief descriptions of your project's current status, your plan going forward, and what kind of support you would like from the people giving feedback. Questions and comments such as, "Please read this over," "Will this work?" and other thoughts are all important to share. Please keep your section of this page neat and up to date. If no one can tell what you're working on, no one will know to send any feedback or tips your way.
Helpful Links for Students
At any time, you can find your current assignment at Current Masterman Assignment.
While writing, you'll find these links helpful to keep on hand, maybe even open in another tab, while working on your projects. Note that you can get to all these and more through Page Building Help.
