Clearly and completely explain the item and your challenge as if presenting it before a judge who is unfamiliar with this course and this test.

Tell what was in the challenged item(s), don’t assume I remember it (and I won’t look it up—you tell me).

Tell what your challenge is—what your answer is and why it reflects a good understanding of the concept in the item(s). Explain why I should accept your answer or proposed resolution.

References to a textbook, your notes, or another resource MUST include complete identification of the source and an attached scan highlighting the referenced section.

Your challenge will be evaluated on BOTH the point you make AND how well you make it. [One or two phrases will NOT do.]
