Mathematical Processes 
Work meets standard of excellence 
Work meets standard of proficiency 
Work meets acceptable standard 
Work does not yet meet acceptable standard 
Problem Solving 
• I demonstrate an insightful understanding of the problem and number patterns
• I choose efficient and effective strategies when applying pattern rules

• I demonstrate a complete understanding of the problem and number patterns
• I choose workable and reasonable strategies when applying pattern rules

• I demonstrate a basic understanding of the problem and number patterns
• I choose partially appropriate and workable strategies when applying pattern rules

• I demonstrate a limited understanding of the problem and number patterns
• I choose inappropriate and/or unworkable strategies when applying pattern rules

Communication 
• I provide a precise and insightful explanation of pattern rules
• I use effective and specific mathematical language, symbols, and conventions to enhance communication about patterns 
• I provide a clear and logical explanation of pattern rules
• I use appropriate and correct mathematical language, symbols, and conventions to support communication about patterns 
• I provide a partially clear explanation of pattern rules
•I use mathematical language, symbols, and conventions to partially support communication about patterns 
• I provide a vague and/or inaccurate explanation of pattern rules
• I use mathematical and nonmathematical language and conventions
incorrectly and/or inconsistently, which interferes with communication about patterns 
Reasoning 
• I comprehensively analyze situations and makes insightful generalizations about number relationships 
• I completely analyze situations and makes logical generalizations about number relationships 
• I superficially analyze situations and makes simple generalizations about number relationships 
•I am unable to analyze situations and make generalizations about number relationships 
Connections 
•I make insightful connections between realworld contexts and number relationships 
• I make meaningful connections between realworld contexts and number relationships 
• I make simple connections between realworld contexts and number relationships 
• I make minimal or weak connections between realworld contexts and number relationships
