graph paper on algebra regents
Posted:
May 26, 2008 6:29 PM



In the booklet for "Directions for administering and scoring the regents examination in Integrated Algebra June 17,2008 administration page 2 "Your school must provide a ruler or other straightedge and coordinate graph paper for students who need to change their work on graphs" So we now give extra graph paper only to students whom need to change graphs Do I assume we do not give graph paper to all students
So the students who mess up the graph will get the back side of the graph paper as "scrap" paper. Do I interpret what could happen not what should? Are schools going to give scrap graph paper to all? Page 6 states collect all papers including unused scrap graph paper. How would it be "unused" unless all students get a sheet
So I should not make a big deal of doing the graphs in pencil as noted on page 7 in directions to students? 5th bullet to use pen except when they are making drawings or diagrams
How do fellow math teachers view this? Vern Tenney presently of Hammondsport
