Notes to self or teacher: This week has been rough for me because I spent most of my time on AP BC Calculus. We had a test so I really needed my energy there. Next week can be more productive though!

Self-Evaluation

1. What was your main objective(s) for the week?

I had planned to explore the NCIB website and clear up my confusion of how my project would work.

2. Did you accomplish what you set out to do in question #1? Why or why not?

I was unable to put time towards exploring NCIB, but I did clear my confusion with my project. I am now clear that it won't be too complicated. I know this becasue we had done something on a slightly smaller scale in AP Biology, so I will be okay. The complex nature of the site and project originally were prohibitting me from trying, but I understand now.

3. What unfinished business do you need to carry over for next week?

My main goal that will carry over is the researching NCIB. This seems fairly simple, but I know how much time should be put towards this task.

4. What can you do to improve next week OR what have you done this week of which you are particularly proud?

I can improve next week since my schedule will be more clear, and I will be more motivated since time is runnig out.

What grade (A-F) would you give yourself for the past week in each of the following categories (you can be honest, this is a completion grade)?

effective use of time ___F____ consideration of others ____A____

class participation ____F___ acceptance of responsibility ____A____

ability to work independently ____F____ quality of work completed ___C_____
