Unformatted text preview: 2011 Fall Calc. I Math. Phys. Sci. (Math 151) Sect. 01,02,03 1 Issues with Workshop Write-Ups Thursday November 17, 2011 This is a list of common errors and stylistic inadequacies that Humberto has found. Students must heed all of these warnings if they want their writing scores to improve. (Calculus II has workshops as well, so this advice may prove helpful beyond the current semester.) Not solving the problem correctly. It is extremely important to solve the problem com- pletely and correctly by making valid use of facts and methods learned in class combined with correct logical deductions and sound reasoning. A solution using concepts or facts that have not been learned in class (for example: radius of curvature ) will be given no credit. Not preparing the write-up individually. When working on the problems in groups, discussion and sharing of ideas is obviously encouraged. Outside of recitation, however, students should work individually to solve the problem completely and to prepare the write-up. Looking up the solution of the problem on the internet or copying from a fellow student is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Writing in a disorganized fashion. Many students write math or explanations in several places of the page, without any clear order. This is terrible. The document should be readable in a linear fashion. This means that there should be a unique order in which to read the write-upa linear fashion....
