Group 29: Actions and Dynamics The members of "The Coulomb Club" had never met one another until our first group meeting. The group was organized by responding to e-mail messages sent out over the class discussion list. Our first meeting, as well as the many that followed, were all held at Memorial Union, and was conducted just three weeks into the semester. Only four members were present, one of which later dropped the class. With just three now in the group, a new member was brought on board. She had belonged to another group, which contained seven members, but conflicts of scheduling led her to join our team. Our final roll call consists of Sharon Teoh, Brian Hinken, James Baker, and Thomas Mathews. We met at Memorial Union every Tuesday evening, and subsequently on any other evening when everyone could be present (usually Thursday or Sunday). On average we met 2 nights a week for 2-3 hours each session. We began our search for interesting articles at the library, where everyone came up with 4-5 interesting topics from countless numbers of sources. We then went through each until we agreed on one topic, which we then submitted for approval. After the first two submissions were rejected, we finally were approved and began to look up links for additional information. Each member of the group worked hard at finding information on our project. Sharon was even able to receive information from the researcher of our approved article. The actual project was divided, with Thomas and Brian working on the Editorial Comments and associated links, and James and Sharon constructing the Problems and Answers set. Once this had been finished, we then exchanged the two sections, and reviewed each others work, making additions wherever needed. The final project was constructed with everyone present at the computer lab, trying to figure out how to put together a web page, as well as how to use html. We met there 2 days over Spring break, and 3 nights the following week for ~2 hours each, until we discovered Netscape Composer. Once this happened, the page only took a matter of a few hours to put together. Prior to Exam 1, the group had only met a couple of times, and we had not interacted a great deal. But by the time the second exam was taken, we had begun work on the project, and had gotten together on several occasions in order to study. These study sessions were spent mainly on going over the practice questions and tests, but sometime was also spent discussing topics that were unclear from lectures or reading. On many occasions, we would begin our meetings with short discussions that did not even relate to class work. This might include MU basketball games, or Thomas's stories from Malaysia. All-in-all, we became a close group that was able to be relaxed with our discussions and listen to what each other had to say. This proved to be very helpful, because our scores from exam one to exam two increased on average half a letter grade. In the future, we all agree that we would be willing to do group projects on the basis that everything could go as smooth and evenly distributed as this one did. Everyone pitched in and helped get the project done. Even now that the web page has been submitted, and the stress of finishing the project has lifted, we have agreed to continue to meet for future study sessions.
