  1. This week I would rate myself 3/5 stars. This week I struggled with staying motivated to do my homework after returning from a week at home. Going from doing nothing to being very busy made it hard to stay focused. However, I think I did a good job working hard in lab and trying to understand the concepts we were studying in the labs we did. Because of my work in lab, I increased my rating because even when I didn’t quite understand where a lab was going I made my best effort to try and understand it.

  2. This week I struggled with being remote, and having bad wifi. It was extremely difficult to understand the labs with bad connection ( And Josh’s…unique camera skills) but I pushed through it and currently am trying to catch up on all the work I was behind on. As well as study for two tests tomorrow. Thankfully I tested negative though, so I should be back tomorrow in class, God willing.

  3. Application
    This week I was able to apply what I have learned about speed in our labs with the tumble buggy. I used what I learned about distance and time to be able to analyze the speed of the tumble buggy and compare the speeds of the slow and fast cars. I then (with my group) was able to figure out when the speed of each car would cause them to approach a line at the same time from different distances. It has helped me to relearn what velocity and speed are in class, but it has helped me even more to be able to see it in a real world situation and see how distance and time affect speed.

  4. This week, I rate myself a 3.5/5. I gave myself a 3.5 because I feel like I did very well picking up my workload this week compared to last week. Also, I feel like I worked very well with my lab partners this week, which I am very proud of! We were all very efficient and worked on really understanding why we were doing what we were doing. I didn’t give myself a higher rating because I kept feeling like I was zoning out in class. I think that was partly because I have been tired this week, but toward the end of the week I really made an effort to pay 100% attention to class. Also, I am very proud of myself for pushing through the confusing homework problems and trying my best to answer them (even if I had no idea how to).

  5. This week I rate myself a 3/5. I give myself this rating because I did well in taking notes and doing my homework thouroughly and without procrastinating even if I wasn’t sure how to work a problem. I also feel like I worked well in the labs and gave my best effort to achieve the end results we wanted, however I was a little lacking on the calculations and thinking through the steps to create our own experiment. I also felt like I kept getting distracted during lectures, even if it was only for a few seconds, and confusing myself in class but I was able to bring myself up to speed.

  6. I give myself 3.5/5 stars for this week. Although I did struggle to find motivation at times to do my homework, I still managed to complete it to the best of my ability. I also believe I worked very well with my lab partners, and we were able to accomplish the experiment with correct data. I would also like to note that we only needed one attempt to succeed in our tumble buggy experiment, because we had very good data. All in all, I’d say I had a fairly successful week

  7. This week I would rate myself a 3/5. The reason that I give myself this rating is because overall, I feel like I understood the topics that we discussed and was able to apply what we learned in the labs that we did. In the labs, I feel like me and my lab partners worked very well together and that we were able to find out an efficient solution to both labs relatively smoothly. The reason that I did not rate myself higher is because I found myself struggling a little bit with certain problems as well as procrastinating to get homework completed. I’m future weeks, I will try to stay more on top of my workload. Additionally, I found myself struggling with how to express how I reached an answer; hopefully I learn how to do that better as we progress.
