3.What are your thoughts about having to do projects in every subject? In what ways are
project-type assessments more difficult, interesting, challenging, or meaningful than traditional ways of showing what you know? Cite an example or two to support your answer.

I love doing project because I felt that doing project is not as boring as doing homework. Usually, when the teachers gave us homework, the answer can be found in the textbook but it is not the same for project. Most of the time, when we are doing project, we have to do a lot of research and we get to gain more knowledge.
To me, project-type assessments that are difficult, interesting, challenging are those that you had to come up with graphs, pictures, conclusion, analyzing and storyboard, which you have never ever come across. I remembered that before the June holiday, there was a math project where the math teacher had picked up ten students to be the leaders and the rest of the thirty students will have to get into group of ten. Every group will have to choose one leaders to work with them. After a long decision, I and my group members have decided to choose a person that is good in mathematics and could work with us well.
