Scoring Rubric

Score of 3 Points

Student response includes each of the following 3 elements.

·         Modeling component: Provides equations showing how to find the total number of the two different types of rolls.  

·         Modeling component- Provides an equation to find the total number of rolls.  

Sample Student Response: Derek had a total of 86 total rolls. 7 x 8 = 56 is the total number of hamburger rolls. 5 x 6 = 30 is the total number of hotdog rolls. I used the equation 56 + 30 = 56 to find the total number of rolls Derek bought.
