Work meets standard of excellence |
Work meets standard of proficiency |
Work meets acceptable standard |
Work does not yet meet acceptable standard |
Mental Mathematics and Estimation |
• chooses an efficient and effective strategy to estimate mass |
• chooses a workable and reasonable strategy to estimate mass |
• chooses a familiar strategy to estimate mass, even though it might not be the most appropriate |
• chooses a random or inappropriate strategy to estimate mass |
Reasoning |
• often draws insightful and logical conclusions and recognizes inappropriately drawn conclusions without prompting |
• in many situations, draws logical conclusions and recognizes inappropriately drawn conclusions when prompted |
• sometimes draws simple, logical conclusions and sometimes recognizes inappropriately drawn conclusions when prompted |
• rarely draws conclusions from a mathematical situation and usually does not recognize inappropriately drawn conclusions |
Problem Solving |
• chooses efficient and effective strategies when applying mathematical knowledge and skills of estimating mass
• chooses efficient and effective strategies when applying mathematical knowledge and skills of time
• develops a thorough plan for solving the problem
• chooses an efficient and effective strategy: may demonstrate creativity and innovation in his or her approach |
• chooses workable and reasonable strategies when applying mathematical knowledge and skills of estimating mass
• chooses workable and reasonable strategies when applying mathematical knowledge and skills of time
• develops a workable plan for solving the problem
• chooses an appropriate and workable strategy |
• chooses partially appropriate and workable strategies when applying mathematical knowledge and skills of estimating mass
• chooses partially appropriate and workable strategies when applying mathematical knowledge and skills of time
• develops a basic plan for solving the problem
• chooses a simplistic and/or routine strategy |
• chooses inappropriate and/or unworkable strategies when applying mathematical knowledge and skills of estimating mass
• chooses inappropriate and/or unworkable strategies when applying mathematical knowledge and skills of time
• develops a minimal and/or flawed plan for solving the problem
• chooses an inappropriate or unworkable strategy |
Communication |
• uses effective and specific mathematical language, symbols, and conventions to enhance communication |
• uses appropriate and correct mathematical language, symbols, and conventions to support communication |
• uses mathematical language, symbols, and conventions to partially support communication |
• uses mathematical and nonmathematical language and conventions incorrectly and/or inconsistently that interfere with communication |
