  6. 6. Communicating the Technology<br />“We feel confident as a group that our mathematical techniques [are mathematically sound]. Although, upon further investigation we have came to the conclusion that this representation of your data doesn’t work…”<br />
  7. 7. An Introduction<br />“Dear Mr. Steven Yusef:<br /> We would first like to thank you for the opportunity to work with you and your company IndyBank. Hopefully our analysis of this data can clearly answer the question you are posing…”<br />
  8. 8. Team Evaluations<br />“Wes was workhorse of our group… He also found the antiderivative from our first equation. “<br /> “Evan… proofread both Wes’s and my work. He was also there to answer questions if we had any. He also helped with analyzing the graph and its overall look.”<br />
