Green Group Mike Morgan Kate Shaver Clare Casteel GROUP DYNAMICS When we started our project we originally had a group of five. However, we found about a month in the semester that we were left with only three members. When we first started meeting, we met at Memorial Union in the coffee area, where we would spend a couple of hours talking about what topic we wanted to do our project on. We went through about ten different topics before we finally all agreed. After we decided on our topic, we all wrote up our own version of the assignment. Once we all did that, we met again at Memorial Union and compared our versions and traded ideas with each other on how we could make it better. We spent a couple of hours at this meeting as well. After we came up with a group consensus we met at Schlundt Hall in the computer lab where we spent a whopping four hours putting our project on the web and working out the kinks of the websites and images. Once we were done putting the project on the web we met one more time at Physics computer lab where we proofread the project and made sure that is was done to the best of our efforts. After reviewing our project many times, we posted it on the web to be graded by our peers. We believe that our group worked really well together. Especially since we only had three group members and other groups had as many as five people. We each contributed to the project in our own way and together we made, what we that was one of the most professional looking projects done. Our group rarely ever encountered any problems that really affected us. The biggest problem we ever encountered was trying to find a time when our schedules didn't conflict, but that didn't even turn out to be that big of a problem. Other than that our group really didn't meet except for when we worked on the project. However, we did all work on the take home test together and plan to do so again for the final. As for the personal level, Kate and Mike knew each other before this class and had previously worked together. Neither Kate nor Mike knew Clare before this class, but after working together, we consider ourselves friends as well as colleagues. As for working in a group again, we all three agreed that we would like to work together again if given the chance. However, we also agreed that we really don't like working in groups. Yet, it group work was beneficial in this class because we studied together, resulting in more success on tests and quizzes.
