Candid Student Reports
The following (emails) were written by members of the Modeling Your World, Session A during the fourth day of the program. Some elements may have been removed for various reasons, but the text that remains is in the student's own words.
Today was ok. I liked the game we played outside. I kind of like the thing we did with Bob1.
Today was ok. I liked the outdoor game where we were all linked and had to un knot ourselves.
Today was fun.
Today has been a great day. Today we learned how to Optimize, Anneal, and learned how to Palette on a computer. We also worked on a model that was about the cooling temperature of water.
Today I had fun. Bob2 worked with us in Stella on some heating and cooling experiments. After the break we went outside and got in groups. Everybody closed their eyes and grabbed someone's hand and we all untangled wothout letting go of each others hand.
Today, we had fun and we played games. We like a lot of what we did and we enjoyed Bob2. He is a really nice man and we are glad that he made up Shodor. We hope that he teaches again and that he shows us some more cool stuff.
I liked doing the cooling exercise today. However, I did not understand much of what weas going on in the program. The exercises using the Surface program were very fun because of their easy-to-understand nature.Today would have been better if I had understood more of what was going on in the cooling exercise
Today was fun.I liked the things that Bob1 talked about. I liked playing with the electrons. Untangling ourselves was really fun too. I like making models. Trying to get the rates down to 0 was fun. See ya tomorow!
The best thing we did today was the human knot game. The surface electron simulation was ok and I liked the cooling models.
