Evaluation


The learner should be able to use mathematical reasoning in calculating costs. Students will be given a common grade for group work and their ability to work as a team. Each group will be graded on calculations, errors, neatness and organization, and the completed project.

Below is a sample rubric for evaluation.

CATEGORY
Outstanding - 4 points
Good - 3 points
Average - 2 points
Poor - 1
Mathematical Reasoning
Uses complex and refined mathematical reasoning.
Uses effective mathematical reasoning
Some evidence of mathematical reasoning.
Little evidence of mathematical reasoning.
Mathematical Errors
90-100% of the steps and solutions have no mathematical errors.
Almost all (85-89%) of the steps and solutions have no mathematical errors.
Most (75-84%) of the steps and solutions have no mathematical errors.
More than 75% of the steps and solutions have mathematical errors.
Checking
The work has been checked by two classmates and all appropriate corrections made.
The work has been checked by one classmate and all appropriate corrections made.
