 CATEGORY 4 3 2 1 Mathematical Terminology and Notation Correct terminology and notation are always used, making it easy to understand what was done. Correct terminology and notation are usually used, making it fairly easy to understand what was done. Correct terminology and notation are used, but it is sometimes not easy to understand what was done. There is little use, or a lot of inappropriate use, of terminology and notation. Diagrams and Sketches Diagrams and/or sketches are clear and greatly add to the reader's understanding of the procedure(s). Diagrams and/or sketches are clear and easy to understand. Diagrams and/or sketches are somewhat difficult to understand. Diagrams and/or sketches are difficult to understand or are not used. Mathematical Concepts Explanation shows complete understanding of the mathematical concepts used to solve the problem(s). Explanation shows substantial understanding of the mathematical concepts used to solve the problem(s). Explanation shows some understanding of the mathematical concepts needed to solve the problem(s). Explanation shows very limited understanding of the underlying concepts needed to solve the problem(s) OR is not written. Strategy/Procedures Typically, uses an efficient and effective strategy to solve the problem(s). Typically, uses an effective strategy to solve the problem(s). Sometimes uses an effective strategy to solve problems, but does not do it consistently. Rarely uses an effective strategy to solve problems. Completion All problems are completed. All but 1 of the problems are completed. All but 2 of the problems are completed. Several of the problems are not completed.
