Chapter Quizzes
A chapter quiz only has one or two problems. Solve the problems using properly written stepbystep answers. You may write on the back of this paper or on a separate sheet of paper. Turn in this rubric cover sheet.
Only problem correctness is graded for chapter quizzes.
_____ Problem One
1. The word problem is correctly made into an equation or other mathematical statements.
2. The math is approached with a sensible method for solving it.
3. The solution is easy to find and labeled correctly.
46. The solution is correct.
_____ Problem Two
1. The word problem is correctly made into an equation or other mathematical statements.
2. The math is approached with a sensible method for solving it.
3. The solution is easy to find and labeled correctly.
46. The solution is correct.
___ Total out of 12
You are not graded on using the characteristics of wellwritten stepbystep problems. This list is provided for reference to help you.
 Paper is ruled with lines tall enough for factions. Work is written using pencil in a reasonable size.
 Problems are clearly numbered, spaced apart sufficiently, and easy to find.
 Enough of the original problem is included to allow doublechecking for copying errors.
 Appropriate parts of the problem line up vertically. Equations are solved with the Vertical Format.
 Work written horizontally to emphasize terms and to leave room for fraction reducing/unreducing.
 The answer is easy to find in a box (or otherwise made distinct).
 Answers that should have labels are correctly labeled.
 Commentary that helps doublecheck the problem is visibly distinct.
 "Off on a tangent" work is to one side, set apart with a brace or cloud, and points to where it fits in.
 Fraction answers are reduced.
 Distinct crossout lines are used each time fraction canceling happens in the problem.
 Dots for multiplication and decimal points are not confusing.
 Steps are small enough to answer "What was I thinking here?"
 Equal signs really mean everything they connect is equal.
 Use proper math grammar.
 Fractions are written vertically, not diagonally.
The six step problem solving process applies to each math topic you meet, as summarized below. These are provided for reference to help you. You do not need to annotate your work to show where the six steps appear.
