Numerical Response Types:
For some numerical-response questions, students are to calculate a numerical answer and record their answer in a separate area of the answer sheet. There are no negative numbers for Numerical Response solutions.
When the answer to be recorded cannot be a decimal value (ie. must be a whole number), students are asked to determine a whole number value: e.g., the number of people is ______; the degree of this polynomial is ______. If the answer can be a decimal value, then students are asked to record their answer to the nearest tenth or nearest hundredth, as specified in the question. Students should retain all decimals throughout the question and round only in the final answer. Other numerical response questions require students to record their understanding of a conceptual idea. Examples of these types of questions are found on the next page.
