Math Image participants will each:

  • Write at least 5 pages: they will pick up and finish 2 pages that someone had started but are unfinished, 1 that has content for high school level students, and 2 that are on topics that they would like to explore and they start from scratch. It is OK for pages to be undertaken collaboratively.
  • Consult with Steve about their initial plan for working on a page, and once they have a go-ahead will within 5 days
  • Identify and begin consulting with a Feedback Team that will consist of:
– 1 senior math person (Steve, Gene, Chris, or Cammie)
– either Diana or Xingda,
– two peers at Swarthmore,
– one person from another school (e.g., Sweet Briar).
The Feedback Team will provide feedback on the page individually and in a group on all iterations of the page. It is the responsibility of Team members to do this on a timely basis so that projects are not delayed. A different Feedback Team will be identified for each page on which a person is working. In other words, a different person should be selected for each of the identified roles, although Diana will be doing most of the senior student support.
  • Following the first Feedback Team meeting for a page, identify and post needed support from a computer science (CS) person, allowing a CS person to sign on to provide support.
