Re: FW: Education - Math & Science Appropriations II

If your daughter can show her work and arrives at the correct answer, she
should get full credit.  My wife teaches business math to high school
students.  She requires that they show their work, not just write down
answers.  Some students get bent out of shape when they just write down an
answer with no work, and only get partial credit.
