    APPLICATION

     

    problem solving; applying what was learned; know how to use what you have learned

     

    (ques) Sue has four times the amount of pencils as Ben. Write an equation to find the number of pencils.

    *4n + n = total pencils ✓

    *4n x n  = total pencils ✗

    Points will be assigned as per the length of the problem; completion of a problem using processes

     

     

    PROCESS

     

    know what equation to use; following an algorithm/ methodology / definitions / Theorems- postulates-conjectures / rules

    (ques.) Find the midpoint of (3,-6) and (-5,2).

     

    *Students know to use the midpoint formula  ✓

    *Students mistakenly use distance formula ✗

    Usually 1 point for using the correct process, definition, theorem or method; most multiple choice/true-false questions will be worth 1 point

     

    FLUENCY

     

    math facts; are you able to apply your math facts to solve the problem correctly; is your final answer right or wrong?

     

     

    *3 x 4 = 12 ✓

    *5 x 7 = 30 ✗

     

     1 point for correct computations within a process/problem
