Tape all components of your project up, including the annotated bibliography. During your presentation session, you must stand by your project, to present your project to classmates and answer their questions.

Peer Review: During the session when you are NOT presenting, you will spend the entire time engaging in linear algebra discussions and reflections about your classmates research by peer reviewing different classmates until the session ends. You will need additional paper to do so. When looking for the next person to peer review, first check if any presenter is alone. The depth of peer review is more important than getting to everyone who is not in your research session
  1. Name of the person and the topic
  2. List the linear algebra concepts from class that relate
  3. What was the most interesting thing you learned from their project?
  4. Invent a question about the project. Write down your question and the person's answer.
  5. How much time and effort does it look like they put into their work, as compared to your own effort?
    [2 = more than me, 1 = about the same as me, 0 = less than me]
  6. Give one or more suggestions for improvement on part 1 (the review of related class material)
  7. List one or more strengths of the project
  8. Give one or more suggestions for improvement on the presentation or other portions of the project
  9. If you didn't already list it somewhere above, what is your favorite part of their project?
Neighbors: During your research session, if you are waiting for someone to come hear you, then listen to your neighbors with half an ear (but stay by your project) and do a partial peer review of their project.

Self Evaluation: Answer the following after you have presented your project:
  1. Your name and topic
  2. What would you have improved about your project?
  3. What did you feel went well?
