Project Check Point #1 Directions!!!
Rubric Example
DESMOS PROJECT CHECK POINT #1 DUE TOMORROW!!!
Project Check Point #1 Directions!!!
 Check Point #1 will include Lines 1  43 only. Equations must be located on the correct line to receive credit! Any "extra" equations that are not on this check point should be below line 43.
 Line 1 should contain the picture you downloaded as a guide. TURN OFF the picture before you print the project.
 Line 28 should be blank unless you had more than 1 picture in which case the second picture should be located here.
 TURN OFF ALL DOWNLOADED PICS before printing.
 Print your project ( black and white copy is all that is required for this check point. Color copies are permissible but not necessary.)
 Put your name at the top of the page where the first equation (line 2) appears.
 Check to be sure that ALL your equations printed. If they did not, try to print out the additional pages by specifying the page numbers under the print command.
 If there are still missing equations, be sure to include your name, username, password and " REMAINING EQUATIONS ONLINE" message at the top of the rubric page. If you do not write this in the specified area, I will not look for additional equations. ( See picture example below)
 Staple your project in the top left corner. Pages should be in this order!!!
 Page with Equation 1 ( line 2)
 Remaining Equations in numerical order.
 Copy of your picture graph with out the downloaded picture guide(s). If this picture printed on the same page as Equation 1, skip this!
 Rubric There should be a BLANK rubric attached to the back of your project. ( If you highlighted the equation type as you completed them or put notes in the margin, that is fine, but the CHECK column and the Teacher Comments column should be BLANK) I will pull the rubric off when grading your project so make sure you WRITE YOUR NAME at the top! If you need to print a clean copy, the link to the original rubric file is at the top of this page under the Desmos Rubric button)
 ALL projects are due at the BEGINNING of class. If you do not have yours ready at that time, you may turn it in until 2:30 for a late grade. (DO NOT INTERRUPT my other classes to turn it in. Come between classes, during lunch, or immediately following 2:15 bell. I will leave promptly at 2:30!
 Any project not turned in by 2:30 will receive a zero for the first checkpoint grade. No exceptions outside of death or documented physical bodily harm! If you are sick but still breathing, save your project as a PDF and mail it to me before class begins. Bring a printed hard copy when you return to school!
