Description

4

All of the assigned problems are complete, and sufficient work is shown on every problem.  Any problems explained during class have been corrected if necessary.  The overall homework assignment is neat with few scratch-outs, organized by question number, and is easily readable.  Drawings or graphs are included when needed.  The assignment number and your name are at the top of the page. 

3

Most of the assigned problems have been attempted, but some problems are missing an explanation, graph, drawing, or calculation.  One or two problems that were answered and explained during class are missing from the assignment or have not been corrected.  The overall homework assignment is neat with few scratch-outs, organized by question number, and is easily readable.  The assignment number and your name are at the top of the page. 

2

Half of the assigned problems are complete, and work is shown on these problems.  Most problems explained by the teacher during class are included with all work shown.  Some problems have only answers with no explanations or calculations.  The overall homework assignment may be difficult to read or unorganized.  The assignment number may be at the top of the page.

1

One fourth of the assigned problems are complete, and work is shown on these problems.  Or, the only problems completed with all calculations shown are those worked out by the teacher during class.  The overall homework assignment may be difficult to read or unorganized.  The assignment number may be at the top of the page.

0

No work is shown; only one number answers are given. 

OR, no homework assignment is turned in.

 

Late homework will be accepted from a chapter until the chapter test is taken.  Any missing assignments will become a zero after the day of the chapter test.  Late homework is automatically worth half credit, implying that if the homework would have normally been worth a score of 4, it now receives a score of 2.
