2.a Things I like:
The game is neteresting. (11 times)
Interaction with students. (5 times.)
Using an interesting game to draw attentions of students. (2 times)
If one cannot solve a problem, try solve a simpler problem first. (2 times)
The mathematical principles behind mathematical games. (3 times)
The enthusiasm of the presenter (2 times)
The usefulness of a simple game to help assign jobs and divide groups.
The analysis is attractive.
Ths connection of job assignment and the problem is insteresting.
Knowlege comes to us begin with easy to further.
(Should say: We can learn by undestanding the basics
and then extend the scope.)
The applications of the mathematical ideas.
The organization of material.
The related knowledge; background research.
Vivid explanation of the problem.
Explanation the material using a game, which is easy to understand.
The proof is fine
Many examples.
The process of learning.
Bubble sort is useful in daily life.
Interesting way to introduce bubble sort.
Bubble sort - I used it in C language, but I know it completely now.
Interesting way to compute 1 + ... + n = n(n+1)/2. (2 times)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.b Suggestions for improvement:
Time control. (8 times)
The speaking speed is fast. (6 times)
Give too little time to consider/understand the questions. (3 times).
The artistic degree of PPT/add more pictures. (2 times)
Give more practical examples/applications. (2 times)
Give more explanation to the terminology and notation (2 times)
Choose an easier topic.
Give translation at difficult point.
Give more details.
Write more on the blackboard to help understanding.
Explain more ideas behind the game.
Explain more connection with computer science.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Reflection:
I am glad that many people like the game.
I will try to speak slower and have a better time control.
I hope to show you more intersting applications of mathematics in daily life,
and listent to your topics.
