We are about to call SED 518-474-5900 about the rubric on #34. The rubric says to take one point off if they list the roots as an ordered pair. We disagree. Roots of a parabola are the x-intercepts. Why can't they be written as an ordered pair? Especially since the question requires students to do the graph.
What are other people's thoughts on this?
