Mathematical Processes 
Work meets standard of excellence 
Work meets standard of proficiency 
Work meets acceptable standard 
Work does not yet meet acceptable standard 
Connections 
• makes insightful connections between realworld contexts and mathematical ideas

• makes meaningful connections between realworld contexts and mathematical ideas 
• makes simple connections between realworld contexts and mathematical ideas 
• makes minimal or weak connections between realworld contexts and mathematical ideas 
Visualization 
• uses visual representations insightfully to foster/demonstrate a thorough understanding of measurement 
• uses visual representations meaningfully to foster/demonstrate a reasonable understanding of measurement 
• uses visual representations simply to foster/demonstrate a basic understanding of measurement 
• uses visual representations poorly to foster/demonstrate an incomplete understanding of measurement 

• uses insightful visual representations that lead to an effective solution 
• uses meaningful visual representations that lead to a workable solution

• uses simple visual representations that lead to a general solution

• uses unclear visual representations that lead to an inaccurate solution

Problem Solving 
• develops a thorough plan for solving the problem 
• develops a workable plan for solving the problem 
• develops a basic plan for solving the problem 
• develops a minimal and/or flawed plan for solving the problem
