Sample Written Work:
The following sample work all answer the question: "How do you solve an equation for x?" It should be noted that none of the papers have wrong information, but some are simply better at providing explanations and elaborating on how to represent this graphically, numerically, and analytically. Though the Far Below Expectations file, the author does forget to cite sources and makes another pretty obvious mistake in formatting. Algebra II's page has some samples, as well.
