Survey About My Use of Phrases
    © March 2019, A. Azzolino
Dear Student,
    As a break from math content, I frequently ask the students what they think about what I plan to do in class or on tests.
    I mentioned I was thinking about my routine revision of the "First Day Letter" and putting a list of what is on the final exam on it. One student requested I give that list to them also.
    I started it on Thursday using the list in the precalc letter as a starting point.
    We also discussed listing things I said often in class and ALL THESE PHRASES WERE MENTIONED. Ivan texted me thorugh the math.htm page. MUCH THANKS TO IVAN for his work!
    This page is how I'd like to get your feedback on whether:      
        a. the phrase is ok as is,      
        b. replace the phrase with ...      
        c. don't use this phrase, but I do not know with what should be replaced.
 
The Phrase Survey:
Who are you?
1. What's your class color:   blue   green   yellow
2. What name/nickname do you use in class?    
3. What's your last name?
