Some vocabulary we discussed today regarding our writing rubric is posted below. Remember that proof and evidence from the text should be used. Pronouns should follow nouns used earlier in writing. Remember you are writing for your reader, not yourself. Be clear and unambiguous. No labels. Use complete sentences. Use vocabulary to strengthen your explanation. Remember to stay on topic. Extra information and mathematical phenomena are interesting, but make sure this supports your topic and doesn't tangent away from it.
