Reflection Questions

 

1.) State what you learned from the activity.

This scavenger hunt has helped me understand many aspects of geometry and also about the software that was used to produce this web site. I was able to create this web site using Macromedia Dreamweaver, a software program that I was incapable of using before this scavenger hunt. I also was educated about many of the mathematicians who developed the modern math that we use today. It was interesting to learn about the history of mathematics and how each mathematician contributed to the development of math. I also learned many terms that I was unaware of before now. Terms such as incenter, circumcenter, orthocenter, centroid, geodesic dome, and the undefined terms of geometry were among the many that I discovered throughout the course of this hunt.

2.) State what you liked about the activity.

I enjoyed creating this web site and developing it to educate its viewers in the many ways that I was educated. I also enjoyed being able to explain the aspects that I had learned to my peers, my parents, and even my brother!! Learning these things in such a way causes me to remember the aspects in months, semesters, and years to come.

3.) State what topics you would like to learn more about.

I would like to learn more about the mathematicians who contributed to the development of mathematics. I was intrigued by the ways and compilations in which these men were able to develop the postulates, theorems, and rules of mathematics that we now use today.

4.) State what difficulties you encountered.

I encountered a few difficulties along my journey of creating this site. I did not have much trouble finding the information, excluding one question. I had trouble locating the types of angles that a goniometer, magnetic compass, and a theodolite measured. However, I believe that the most prominent difficulties that I encountered were the selection and creation of my background and the development of my buttons onto a transparent background so they would look as they ended up looking.
