Procedures for Entering the Math Classroom
We will be learning many procedures and routines for the smooth running and management of the classroom. These are probably the most important.

ASSIGNMENT RUBRIC for Homework
Most assignments are worth 5 points each. Points will be awarded based on effort and the following:
5 - Fully attempted assignment. The paper is properly formatted with no more than 2 columns of work proceeding down the page like a newspaper. All computational problems are done vertically with every step shown. Every problem is completely done in pencil. Slight errors are acceptable but all directions have been followed.
4 - Substantially attempted. The paper is properly formatted with no more than 2 columns of work proceeding down the page like a newspaper. All computational problems are done vertically with every step shown. Every problem is attempted.
3 - Partially attempted assignment. All (or almost all) problems are attempted, but there is an apparent lack of effort. Steps (write the problem, show work, circle the answer) are probably missing. Formatting may be incorrect.
2 - Limited attempt of assignment.
1 - Some effort shown.
0 - Little or no effort shown.
Since students are not expected to master the material immediately, they are rewarded for demonstrated effort which initially is more important than the correctness of answer! Judgment of effort is not graded in the traditional “right/wrong” model. A student may have all correct answers and yet receive a 3 for missing steps. A student can be assured that he or she is showing all the work necessary by referring back to the notes or directions given for the day. The examples contain the types of steps necessary to show “complete attempt of the assignment.” In other words, at least in the early stages of learning new material, the correct process can be more important than the correct answer.
