A4—The exploration is well organized, coherent, concise and complete, and fulfills its aims. This means that it is complete and is awarded a level 4.

B2—The “approximately equal to” sign is either not used, or is inconsistently used. The student did not recognize that the data are discrete.

C2—Some personal interest is expressed, with evidence of thinking independently.

D2—The student links mathematical ideas and considers the significance of the results. But this is not extended in the context of the exploration and not enough questions are raised.

E4—The mathematics used is relevant and commensurate with the level of the course, but the knowledge shown is not good.

E2—Although commensurate with the level of the course, the knowledge demonstrated is not good, and this merits only a level 2.
