CPSC110 Class Portrait, February 18, 2010

First test today! The test is on materials form chapters 1-3.

We didn’t spend too much time getting set up for the picture so there would be more time for the test.

The test scores had a large range, btu the average was about 79. Not bad for the first test.

CPSC 110 Class Portrait, February 22, 2010

The idea for this class portrait was to have a picture of an object from each student. So they each picked one and put them on the floor. No real preparation for the choice of the object. A good selection of objects: pens, pencils, books, phones, calculators, and a tangerine.

We went over the quizzes for chapters 2 and 3 in hopes of getting people ready for the test on Thursday.

Test today on the material in chapters 1-8.  This is a writing intensive course so the test had a number of essay questions. I gave the students the essay questions before the exam so they would time to develop well-thought out answers. The resutls bore that out; many of the essays were very good.

The picture doesn’t show everyone on the class since they all hadn’t show up when I took the picture. There is another with more students but I really liked the looks on the faces of the ones  in this picture.

So we had  this idea of representing the class as a binary tree. The root (Will) is in the back. Leaves int he front. Each student links to its children by putting an arm (left or right) o the shoulder of a child node. As good of an idea  that was, it turned out to be difficult to photograph.

We went over information on types and sample questions for the test that would be given the next class period.

CPSC 401 Class Portrait, February 9, 2010The class portrait for February 9, 2010. We’ve ad lots of snow and they chose “Too Much Snow” as their words.  This class seems much more comfortable using the letters to make up words than my CPSC 110 class. Is it because they know each other better? As a group they are older, too.

More snow on Wednesday and Thursday and I didn’t get in to class on Thursday.

CPSC 110 Class Portrait, February 9, 2010 The class portrait on February 9, 2010. We’ve had lots of snow and some snow days. Attendance was down because of the snow.

Once again I called for volunteers and they made up a word – Mork, amidst several clams that they couldn’t think of anything better.

We had more snow on Wednesday and Thursday. i couldn’t make it to class on Thursday.
