Level in school
Are you familiar with Python? (the programming language for this course)
Other programming courses/experience, in particular indicate
Math courses, particularly algebra
What would you like to learn in this course? Anything
You probably do not know exactly what learning situations you
will find most useful for this specific class, but I would like a
starting point based on your past experience. Please let me know if
your desires change later.
In class we will integrate topics
and do examples linking concepts in novel ways. You will be
expected to do the same. These are some of the harder things to
do and are worthwhile doing in class. Then there is the question of how
much time to spend in class on basic, more factual material. What is
important for you in dealing with new factual information that is
covered in your text?
Learn it from a lecture presentation; the
book is just a backup.
After a quick overview of the most
important topics to look for, read the data at my pace, and ask
questions and see/do examples in class.
Read it and go over it myself , and
mostly use class for harder things, except where I have specific
Class and reading are not generally enough to really learn
much. Doing/using new things is essential. Do you like to work alone at
your own pace, and know you did everything? Does it help you to
learn to do things and be able to apply them later yourself
(not just get correct solutions on specific problems) when you consult
in a group? You will have individual, not group, tests and take-home
quizzes ultimately determining most of your grade. Given all this, how
would you like to deal with work outside of class?
Checkin on what people know already,
to prepare class emphasies.
The remaining answer choices are
shorthand. Here is what they mean:
Know: I could do/use
this right now with little trouble.
Refresh: I learned
this before, but now I would need to go back and look at my notes and
refresh my knowledge.
???? : I have not
