Have you developed the ability to work both independently (individually) and collaboratively (group work) on mathematical problems? State an example of each.
No. But one time in probability & statistics at tarleton, I had to do group work. We had to do something about the monty hall problem. The other people didn't believe me. I retrieved a copy of The curious incident of the dog in the nighttime, which is the book I learned it from, and I showed them the diagram, and then we set up an experiment and it came out just the way the diagram predicted. Individually? Um, I took the SAT and the ACT. I've taken tests in most of my math classes. Obvs I've solved stupid math problems independently. 5+5=10. There's an example. I just did it. Ugh. I built a shelf once. That involved math. I did it alone. I mean, I did the math alone. Someone else cut the boards.
