Assigning Variables to an Equation

by Tina
(North Reading MA)

I teach Algebra I (Prentice Hall Text) and have a question. When you assess your students, do you require that that define variables before writing an equation or function rule? I do, but have spoken to other teachers that don't. Is there a protocol for this? Please let me know.
