Week 11 Feedback

  • I have reviewed your Week 11 assignment. You have not provided me with any of the Excel or .txt files requested for this assignment so I cannot review them. You have put in the definitions of your 10 GO terms, but you have not written an interpretation, so I cannot give you any feedback on that.

Week 7 Feedback

  • Your Week 7 individual journal assignment was late by 46 minutes and you did not submit to the shared journal page this week.
  • You fulfilled all of the hyperlinks required for the assignment (back and forth to user page, to assignment, category).
  • Your electronic notebook was very minimal. The intent of an electronic notebook is to record what you did so that you or somebody else could reproduce what you did based on the information there. Your notebook was only a description of how you and Natalie worked together, not what you actually did in terms of the modeling. In addition to the MATLAB files, you should have described what values you used for each run of the model and why you chose them. You should have shown the plots that resulted and your interpretation of what they mean.
  • Your handwritten notes on the analysis of the steady-state were good.

Week 1 Redux

  • I have reviewed all the changes you made for the Week 1 Assignment; thank you for submitting them on time.
  • I noted that your usage of the summary field has improved; you have written comments in the summary field for 70% of the last 50 contributions you made. Remember, we are aiming for 100%.
  • You made all of the requested changes except that your syntax for linking to an uploaded file is incorrect. Instead of [[Image:Biology_112_Final_PP_.pdf]] the correct syntax is [[Media:Biology_112_Final_PP_.pdf]]. I'm not sure why your label wasn't showing up properly for this link. Try a shorter label to see if it works.

Week 1 Feedback

Here is the feedback to your Week 1 journal assignment.

  • Please be sure to submit your assignment on time. Your individual journal page was finished 34 minutes late and your questions to both me and Dr. Fitzpatrick were a few minutes late as well. Make sure that you start the assignment well in advance of the deadline so that you give yourself enough time to finish it all.
  • The grade for this assignment is posted on the MyLMUConnect Grade Center for this course. You will be able to earn back the points you missed on this assignment by completing the requested revisions below by the Week 3 journal assignment deadline of midnight on Tuesday, February 3 (Monday night/Tuesday morning).
    • Every time you make a change to a wiki page, please type something in the summary field (found above the "Save page" button). It appears that you did not do this at all for this assignment.
    • Please link your name on the course People page to your user page.
    • Under your section on "Work Experience", you did not provide the dates for your LMU administrative assistant job.
    • The image that you uploaded to your wiki page is quite large and dominates the page too much. Please format it smaller. You can find instructions on the MediaWiki help pages here.
    • Please upload a non-image file and link to it on your user page. Other students have uploaded resume's or scientific presentations they have done, for example.
    • Your category did not show up properly on the page because you did not follow the correct syntax. It will not work properly if it is part of a bulleted list. Also, the correct category is [[Category:BIOL398-04/S15]], not [[Category:BIOL398-04/Week1]].
    • You created a template, but did not actually invoke it on your user page. You need to make your list of weekly assignments, individual journal pages, and shared journal pages on your template page and then use the following syntax on your user page and individual journal pages {{Karina_Alvarez}}.
    • The link to the Assignment page and to the Week 1 shared journal was not there as of the Week 1 deadline.
    • You did not use and "third" level subheadings (three equals signs or more). Be sure to utilize this feature to organize content on your journal pages.
    • Please remove the "I am a new user" template from your user page and remove the double helix picture (or replace it). You can also remove the OpenWetWare automated text from the bottom of this talk page.

I've answered your question on my User talk page. Kam D. Dahlquist 21:31, 29 January 2015 (EST)

Answer to question posed to Dr. Fitzparick

You asked Hi Dr. Fitzpatrick, When did you first become interested in pursing math? Was there a favorite class or other moment?

I always liked math as a school subject, but I never really thought of it as a career until I took differential equations and talked to a professor who spent his summers at NASA doing orbital mechanics simulations. He seemed to be having so much fun doing that... it got me to change majors from engineering into math. I was very fortunate to have a lot of great professors as an undergrad at Auburn, most of whom I still talk to, more than 30 years later. Ben G. Fitzpatrick 01:57, 21 January 2015 (EST)

Hello, Karina Alvarez! This is a welcome message from OpenWetWare. By the way, we've announced you on the home page! You can leave messages to any OWW member by editing their User_talk pages like this one. And don't forget to personalize your User Page so that we can get to know you better! We've included some tips below to get you started.

Basic Wiki Instructions

  • Don't be afraid to edit! As with all pages on the wiki, all versions are saved so its easy to undo. If you have any questions feel free to send us an email.
  1. Start off by clicking the 'edit' button to the right of this section, or at the top of the page.
  2. Now you should see the text of this section as text within an editor box. There are several buttons in the editor box, but don't worry about those for now. Just type something in the box, scroll down to the bottom, and hit the 'Preview' button.
  3. You should see the web-page and text box views, but now with your edits! Don't forget to save your changes by clicking 'Save Page'!
  4. Editing pages is as easy as that. There are of course many ways to format your text. The easiest way to learn is to find an OWW page with the formatting you like, click on the edit button again, and see for yourself how it was created in the text box. Here's an extensive list of formating examples. Or look at this OpenWetWare introductory tutorial.
  5. When you are done, remove these instructions by clicking the edit button for this section again, erase everything you see in the text box and click 'Save Page'. (And remember you can always retrieve these by clicking on the 'history' tab at the top of this page.)

Note that these instructions apply to any page on OWW. Feel free to contribute to OWW by editing pages to add content, update them, or even correct mistakes. OWW relies on an active community to manage our growing resource of open access information, and we need your help!

Personal/Lab Info

We have gone ahead and filled in some information you provided us in your membership application on your User Page. Please take a moment to embellish this and tell the community a little more about you. Put links to your lab pages, your projects and your interests. If you run out of ideas, take a look at some of the other User pages. For example, check out User:Julius_B._Lucks, User:Jason_R._Kelly and User:Reshma_P._Shetty.

You'll also notice that we have put an 'image' placeholder at the top of your User Page. We encourage you to upload an image of yourself to give OWW a more personal feel. To upload an image, click on the Upload file link on the left-hand side (toolbar). Choose a file from your computer, and remember the file name. After you have uploaded the image, you should see it loaded on its own page. Go back to your User Page, click on edit, and replace 'OWWEmblem.png' with the name of your file that you have uploaded in the second line of this page.
