information needed to solve problem &
ignoring the not-needed info
Model:
Visual includes a part to whole
Visual has both parts of operation (what is
being +-x/)
Solution is easy to find in visual
Explanation or key is included
Solutions:
Valid (5-6): you have an OK answer
o a fraction not in simplest form
o an improper fraction or mixed number
when it shouldve been the other
Correct (7-8): you have the best answer as a
simplified fraction
Degree of Accuracy:
Explained(7-8): You told, with detail, why
your answer is accurate
Described(5-6): you said that your answer
was accurate
Answer Makes Sense:
Described(7-8) you said that your answer
makes sense and gave some proof
