If you did take the Midterm Redo, did you feel it helped you learn things you had not understood on the original midterm?
#Response DateIf yes, please describe what you felt you learned.
1.11/6/2008 2:54:00 AMI tend to skip over certain steps and in skipping miss key errors in my calculations.
2.11/6/2008 3:03:00 AMMostly things concerning correct notation and how to be as clear as possible when giving an answer.
3.11/6/2008 3:04:00 AMIt gave me more time to clarify on things I didn't understand or prove that I could do it but in the stress of testing I made silly mistakes.
4.11/6/2008 3:10:00 AMIt helped making the corrections because that makes sure you really understand the problem
5.11/6/2008 3:17:00 AMWhile I am not proud to admit this, normally when I take tests and make mistakes on the test, I usually glance over the mistakes but won't necessarily take the time to go over what I did incorrectly. This method gave me the opportunity to truly learn what I did incorrectly. I am really happy that I had this opportunity because otherwise I unfortunately may not have taken the time to do so.
6.11/6/2008 3:29:00 AMI learned that I had to be careful about my interpretation of derivatives. I also had to go back and refresh my memory on what he had learned so it was beneficial for my understanding of calculus.
7.11/6/2008 3:38:00 AMIt helped me understand the concept better because by the end of it it was as if the idea was drilled into my head...I dont think i can ever forget how to do that question now.
8.11/6/2008 4:15:00 AMi feel alot more comfortable with finding the equation of a lie tangent to a curve when given the equation of the curve and coordinated. the redo also helped me clarify problems with graphing the derivatives of functions.
9.11/6/2008 4:17:00 AMFor some problems I made silly mathematical mistakes, but for a whole section (Q. # 5) I did everything wrong. I realized during the redo that it wasn't as though I didn't know how to do the math, I just didn't know what steps/ formula the problem was looking for. Now I know what kind to do with those problems.
10.11/6/2008 4:33:00 AMI learned more about how to graph positions and velocity.
11.11/6/2008 5:04:00 AM- I saw clearly what I understood and what I didn't. though I thought I knew derivatives and how to go about answering a questions by steps I realized that when answering questions I skipped them. looking over my test and working on what I struggle on in the first test allowed me to see where my mistakes lied and what I misunderstood. the time in between also gave me time to work with my tutor which I didn't receive before the first step. I know that I need extra assistance in math. I learned that about myself in the last 2 months.
12.11/6/2008 2:35:00 PMI learnt how to apply the derivatives rules appropriately,finding limits from a graph and how the derivative formula is derived.
13.11/6/2008 2:43:00 PMI learned how to better absorb the information and use it different ways
14.11/6/2008 6:36:00 PMI fell I have a better understanding of how the mathe involved with derivatives relates to the actual graph.
15.11/6/2008 9:25:00 PMI learned how to answer the question that I answered in-correctly on the first mid-term. It also made me remember my mistake and remember the correct answer!
16.11/6/2008 10:15:00 PMI was able to remember little things that I forgot by correcting my problem and doing another one similar to the original.
17.11/6/2008 11:09:00 PMhow to do the questions i got wrong
18.11/7/2008 3:13:00 AMIt cleared up all of the misunderstandings that I had the first time I took the test. Now I feel like I will actually be able to remember the things I learned and use them again.
19.11/7/2008 4:06:00 AMSometimes it takes me a little longer to understand math concepts; when I took the midterm the first time, I really didn't feel like the material had sunk in yet. If there hadn't been a redo, I probably would have just tried to move on and focus on new concepts; the redo helped make sure that I really went back and learned the material, and now I feel very comfortable with it.
20.11/7/2008 1:33:00 PMI made some simple mistakes, and just misunderstood a few problems in such a small way, but it ended having big repercussions. I'm trying to be more careful, and make sure I really understand.
21.11/9/2008 6:26:00 AMi was able to learn the relationship between taking the limit of f(x) is the same as finding the slope of f(x+h)
