  • Test Corrections Instructions

    Avoid these common mistakes:

    The written explanation must explain how to solve the question.  I should be able to read it and understand exactly how you solved to get the correct answer.

    Good explanations look like:

    "Because the two angles are supplementary, I know they add up to 180 degrees.  Then I can write the equation 2x+80=180.  To solve the equation, I subtracted 80 from both sides of the equal sign.  Then I divided both sides of the new equation by 2.  My final answer is x=50."

     

    You should not explain what your mistake was.

    Explanations should not look like: (These receive no credit)

    "I wrote an equation then solved"

    "I added instead of subtracted"

    "I didn't know how to do it, but now I do"
