Before submitting your final project, apply this rubric to the project:

Mathematical Journey Rubric
Attribute/Level Not Acceptable Minimally Acceptable Acceptable Exceeds
Toolbox Does not have the algebraic tools at hand to solve stated problem Can access tools with some prodding and then is able to apply with success toward the problem at hand Has tools at hand and can access them as needed to solve the problem at hand. Not only has a solid available toolbox of methods but also has the skills available to add to that toolbox as needed.
Assumptions Does not identifying any assumptions before addressing the problem at hand Identifies some assumptions, but has an incomplete list Identifies critical assumptions for the problem at hand Addresses all assumptions and thinks ahead to the implications of those assumptions for the solution of the problem
Model Model is either non-existent or so unorganized that it is nearly impossible to follow; conclusions are unsupported and often incorrect Model is presented with some explanation and followed through; conclusion may have a few minor flaws, but is generally acceptable Model is laid out clearly and followed through; good organization makes model clear; model leads to defendable conclusion Excellent documentation accompanies the model and itis followed through to a clearly laid-out conclusion, which is supported throughout with good mathematics
Articulation Little (if any) explanation is given regarding the mathematics used and/or incorrect interpretation is proposed. Terms are not defined. General steps are identified for a proposed solution, although some details are missing or unclear. Interpretation of the mathematics is generally correct. Most terms are defined. The problem-solving process is clearly articulated and the interpretation of the math used is correct. All terms are identified correctly. The whole process is explained fully in each step. All results are fully interpreted and there is a depth to the interpretation. All terminology is defined in one’s own words and demonstrates a solid comprehension of all terms and approaches.
Validation The solution is not validated. Some attempt is made to check the solution for validity. The solution is validated. Several approaches are used to validate the given solution.
Self-Assessment No self-assessment occurs. Some strengths and areas for improvement are identified. Good insight is added to careful identification of strengths demonstrated as well as areas to improve. Along with clear articulation of strengths and areas to improve, the learner demonstrates impressive insight into the whole process.
