# Final Project

## Part III.

**Select and present your discussion or solution to one
exercise/investigation from any of the assignments that meet each of the
following criteria:**

**A. You felt you learned the most
mathematics... Why?**

Although I knew the definitions of
most of the terms in **Assignment
4**, I did not necessarily understand the concepts until I was able
to use GSP to help visualize and explore the topics.

**My Write-up 4**

**B. You felt most satisfied/happy about... Why?**

I
am most satisfied with my **Write-up
8** because it is one that I can say is complete.From a my exploration,
I made a conjecture and I proved it. I feel that most of my write-ups are
at a 'stopping point', but that there is so much more that can be explored
or discovered.

**C. You felt shows your best (most thorough? most creative?
most useful?) effort during the quarter.**

I would have
to choose **# 2 from Part 1
of the final **as my most useful write-up because I use Algebra Xpressor,
GSP, and Microsoft Excel to demonstrate the same problem. This will afford
most students the opportunity to understand the concept.

**D. You felt that your doing the exploration/problem opened
up new elements of mathematics for you... Why?**

I was completely
unfamiliar with pedal triangles, so **Assignment
9** definitely opened new elements of mathematics for me although
several other assignments contained explorations of topics in ways that
I had never considered.
