- listed on a separate piece of paper?
- ones that include significant mathematics?
- ones that discuss the assumed level and background of the students?
- ones that discuss necessary materials (including computers, manipulatives, ...)?
- ones that are both reasonable and attainable?
### Is the worksheet:

#### Introduction and Writing

- one that contains an introduction that introduces the major themes by summarizing what will be done in the worksheet?
- one that discusses the importance of the work in the context of mathematics, the real world, and/or applications?
- one that contains appropriate sections that are labeled?
- one that contains reasonably lengthed paragraphs with well defined themes?
- one that uses correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation?
**In Word, red underlined text means incorrect spelling.** - one that addresses the appropriate audience who is educated but does not know the mathematics that you are trying to teach them. For example, think of yourself as a worker trying to explain his/her specialized work to an executive who is interested, educated, but clueless about what you do.
- one that flows
smoothly when read out loud? Have someone else read it to you,
or read it to someone else.
**This is worth more.** - one that looks professional and contains graphs, formulas and
equations within
the text (not as appendices)?
**This is worth more.** - one that looks professional?
- one that has equations done in Equation Editor?
- one that is self contained?

**This is worth more.** - one that discusses the mathematics in your own words?
**This is worth more.** - one that explains/explores the mathematics slowly and clearly enough so that Dr. Sarah can follow?
- one that explains/explores the mathematics
slowly and clearly enough so that others who haven't seen it before
can follow?
**This is worth more.** - one that contains activities that teach and/or reinforce the mathematics?
- one that effectively engages the reader with these activities?
- one that encourages creative exploration?
- one that contains a moment of "aha!" or true discovery?
- one that satisfies the worksheet goals?
- one that explores the mathematics deeply?
**This is worth more.**#### References and Comments on How You Used Them
