I'm finally bringing myself back to this wiki and would like to finish what I had promised you to do in terms in helping documenting all these templates that are behind the screens. What would work best in your opinion: dedicated pages to explain the dynamic (with the problematic of having to update those pages themselves) or rather putting in more work in the documentation pages of the templates themselves? Or maybe you have another idea? Please, let me know.
and welcome back! We actually did quite a bit of work on the documentation of how the MER works. Please check out http://wiki.ubc.ca/Science:MER/Manual and http://wiki.ubc.ca/Science:MER/Contributors_Guide. The documentation of the templates themselves, and in particular how they are combined and nested, is difficult because they keep changing. But still we would like to develop a concept map to facilitate future development, especially for new contributors. Even if that means is has to be updated and extended every term. Since you are back in town, we would love to invite you for a coffee some time soon. You have to let us show you the things that happened here in the last year! Please let me know when would be a good time for you. Good to have you back :)
Sure, I would love that. Can we do this Wednesday?
That will work. Eg, we have lunch series from 12:30-2. I'm free for the rest of the day. The closer we meet at UBC, the higher the chance to meet more main contributors. Please let me know via email.
I have no clue how to explain the solution of the last problem left on the 102 exam. Maybe Will has a good idea?
You didn't spot a mistake in your review of Science:Math_Exam_Resources/Courses/MATH102/December_2011/Question_1_(b)_i
The (1-x) of the problem became (x-1) in Will's solution. I'm working on it.
correct. thank you. Put it back to RS when you are done
done! Added another solution and rewrote the hint.
We are opening the MER project to undergrads and have started a new way to list who is a contributor, so if you could add [[Category:MER Participant]] anywhere in your userpage, you would then be listed as a contributor. Cheers, David
So I've started the uploading of the April 2012 exam. I've got all the questions up - though I'm missing the picture for one problem. Can you make sure that I created the page correctly and that all the background links are working as they should?
Also, when the time comes, I might ask you to make the pictures for the problem I'm missing - the ones I do tend to be some solid low budget MSPaint projects - yours seem to be a bit higher quality lol.
good job! All seems correct. You even removed the "create new question" box :) If you send me the pdf of the exam then I can quickly QGQ, and then later also do QGS.
In the last few days I also uploaded the Math 103 final of this year. Maybe you can proof read that at some point as well. I uploaded questions and solutions, by hints are mainly missing. If you'd add a few, that would be appreciated.
And yeah, just send me a sketch of which pictures you want to have uploaded and I see what I can do.
Okay at some point I'll try to get through this - I'm kinda just working on the wiki when I'm too tired to do anything serious :D
Here is the temporary site for the MATH 101 exam
I saw the MATH 103 stuff as well - I'll hop on it at some point lol - too much work to do and never enough time.
Oh yea and the picture - Its Q6 on this exam - I would need one for the statement and then the modified one for the solution - I could do them but I mean I'm pretty sure in the end someone is going to go back and likely change all the ones I did anyways lol. Might as well do it right the first time. I have enough experience with the graphing ones that I can just manually do those and make them look nice.
I've already ranked that exam as complete, but it isn't 100% fair since we still need to deal with the hint you rated QBH. I made some modifications, please have a look so that we can wrap-up with that exam asap. Cheers,
I finished the QBH, made some more minor modifications, and then flagged it as good. I'm happy another exam is done. It was fun finishing that together this morning :)
Please have a look at: Science:Math_Exam_Resources/Courses/MATH101/April_2005/Question_3_(c)/Solution_1 where I made several changes in the display of the mathematics. A few points that I suggest (some you already use I believe):
- Indent math formulas that are on separate lines by typing :<math>formula</math>
- Use the align environment for multiple equalities (see the code in the page I linked)
- in the few cases where the display style is not activated, enforce it manually by typing \displaystyle inside your formula (this is a tex command). See for example the line with 3dy=dx in the linked page.
Thanks for all the good work!
Hi David, thanks for these tips. I try to follow them when I write solutions/questions by myself, but typically I'm too lazy to correct other peoples' formatting. I think it's a minor issue, we focus on reviewing content quickly, and adding many more solutions. But you are right, when I see stuff like that I should correct it right away.
I like your tips for the students! They are very valuable. However, they are also pretty long :) Can you somehow shade them or use a smaller font or something. Just so that the page looks less crowded? If you know what I mean?
Also, maybe for now while we didn't advertise for it yet, could you maybe show the tags on the question page? To make reviewing that easier.
Talk to you soon. Keep up the good work!
I'll work on reducing the study tips somehow, I think a smaller font could work and maybe a shade of grey is a good idea too. Thanks for the feedback.
As for the tags, to have them visible would mean to make a modification to each of them when they are created, if we create a few dozens of them, it will be annoying to edit all that. And the result would be to have them at the very bottom of the page. I feel like hitting the edit button is by far our easiest way for the moment.
Let's focus on questions, hints and solutions for the rest of the week, we'll see when we have the group meeting what others feel about this. Maybe we can streamline the process there.
