Personal Best Attributes

1.  Directions are followed.

3.  Sentences are complete and standalone without the question. The subject is identified.

4.  Attention is paid to detail- enough information is included to communicate clearly the idea it represents.

5.  Assignment is easy to read, has neat handwriting, and an eraser is used. (words are not crossed out)

6.  Formatting and the use of white space is appropriate to the assignment. (example: Do not draw a tiny little picture when a whole page is given.)

7.  Straight lines are done with a ruler. (Especially when writing on a blank paper)

9.  Any graphics are done to the best of your ability and labeled when needed.

10. Final drafts on larger assignments, and all projects, must be typed or done in ink.

* Don’t forget to consider how to go above and beyond on large assignments, projects, and assessments.

Math work: Getting full points

For all of your math homework assignments, you must show you work in the following way:

  • Peterson Heading
  • Showed work on a separate piece of paper for each problem, with:
    • Each problem labeled with problem #
    • Each answered circled
    • Each problem has a box around all the work & answer
    • Each step you used is clear
  • Correction marks on the actual assignment for each problem (*,/,dot…)
  • Error analysis for all problems you got incorrect on your showed work 

*Weekly Word Problems will sometimes have space provided on the front or back of the page, and will not require a separate paper.

*Some assignments will have room on the paper for showed work, but this will specifically be communicated in class, the default is to do work on a separate paper.
