Mathematical Processes 
Work meets standard of excellence 
Work meets standard of proficiency 
Work meets acceptable standard 
Work does not yet meet acceptable standard 
Communication 
• I provided a precise and insightful explanation of each transformation. 
• I provided a clear and logical explanation of each transformation.

• I provided a partially clear explanation of each transformation.

• I provided a vague and/or inaccurate explanation of each transformation.


• I used effective and specific mathematical language, symbols, and conventions to enhance communication. 
• I used appropriate and correct mathematical language, symbols, and conventions to support communication. 
• I used mathematical language, symbols, and conventions to partially support communication. 
• I used mathematical and nonmathematical language and conventions incorrectly and/or inconsistently which interfere with communication. 
Connections 
• I made insightful connections between at least two mathematical concepts. 
• I made meaningful connections between at least two mathematical concepts. 
• I made simple connections between at least two mathematical concepts.

• I made minimal or weak connections between at least two mathematical concepts. 
Visualization

• I used visual representations insightfully to foster/demonstrate a thorough understanding. 
• I used visual representations meaningfully to foster/demonstrate a reasonable understanding. 
• I used visual representations simply to foster/demonstrate a basic understanding. 
• I used visual representations poorly to foster/demonstrate an incomplete understanding.
