formula sheets.
• Be careful of calculator mode.
• Please do all work on the paper given.
• Exams will likely take about two weeks to grade and
will not be returned to students (part of final exam).
• 1/3 of grade is MATHEMATICAL CONTENT
• Are the concepts, principles, terms, and symbols used correctly and/or
developed fully throughout the response?
• Are the computations complete and correct?
• Is your solution complete and correct?
• 1/3 of grade is REASONING
• Did you correctly identify and solve the problem?
• Did you employ efficient strategies and refined reasoning?
• Did you use appropriate graphics and procedures?
• 1/3 of grade is COMMUNICATION
