Reviewer:         Name of student being reviewed:

Pretend you are a student at another school. Read the write-up to see if you understand the ideas and are convinced by the reasoning and that the writer has fully met the write-up requirements.

  1. In the Problem Statement, the author must explain the problem in their own words so that the reader will understand without knowing any background information. How well did the author did this? Give some feedback.

  1. In the Process part, the author must describe their process in detail, including math work, annotations of their math work and explanations of what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, and any reflections on their work. Their work should include diagrams/charts/other representations, when useful. How well did the author do this? Can you understand what they did and why it made sense to them? Did they explore the mathematical space fully? Give some feedback.

  1. In the Solution part, the author should state what they were able to find out and how they know that it is correct. How well did the author do this? Are you convinced by their explanation and solution(s)? Is the underlying mathematics explained and justified in depth? Give some feedback.

  1. In the Strategies section, the author should explain someone else’s approach and compare it to their own. How well were they able to demonstrate understanding of the other method? Did they explain the pros and cons of each? Give some feedback.

  1. In the Extensions part, the author should create several interesting extensions or variations on the problem. How well did the author do this? Do they demonstrate creativity and insight into what makes for good mathematical problems? Give some feedback.

  1. In the Reflection part, the author should reflect on their enjoyment and learning from the problem and set goals for the future. How well did the author do this? Give some feedback.

  1. Other feedback? What did the author do really well? What one thing can they do to improve their write-up?
