How do people feel about the idea of "showing your work". As in: how did you arrive at your answer? I ask my students to do it all the time when they are practicing. It allows me to monitor their progress and specifically critique problem areas. However, I will often omit this requirement on a test. I'll tell them that it's quite simple: "If you get it wrong and don't show your work then you get no points. If you get it wrong and show your work you might get partial or near full credit especially if you just plug it into your calculator funny." How do other handle this? I know math teachers struggle with this daily and it might not be a huge issue in classes outside of science/math, but how do you implement this and how do your students like it? Or maybe it is a huge issue outside of science/math? I don't know!
