Here is our group dynamics report for:

Joni Barnes
Adrienne Smith
Rob Jeffcoat
Lacretia Jones (withdrew from group)

Overall, we feel that our group was very helpful in this course. Each of
us had very busy schedules and it was hard to find meeting times, but we
managed to squeeze it in.  Our group met, on average, once a week.  We
discussed the notes for that week and went over some of the problems in
the text.  Many times there were questions that one of us did not
understand and the others did, so this was very helpful.

One of our group members did not need this course and withdrew, so she
did not meet with us.  Most of the time, the three of us could all meet,
but there were also times when one of us wasn't available.  Before the
exams, we tried to meet more frequently and go over the old exams and
problems.  It was also helpful when one of missed a lecture, we could
get notes from the other members in our group.

The study group has helped each of us to gain a better understanding of
all the topics covered in lecture and in the text. We think that this
strategy should be used for future classes.  It is also a way to get
acquainted with some of your classmates, which makes the class feel a
little more comfortable.  Our group has benefited greatly from meeting
with each other and hopefully this will show in our grades.
