I agree with you.

Clip to ScrapBook #5

The number is about the math and the labels are more about comprehending details or even following directions. If the math is right and there is no label or it is labeled incorrectly, I take off for that part only.

Conversely, if the math is wrong and the labels are right, it keeps the grade tanking entirely.

I will say that I am more apt to allow do-overs for wrong math and for wrong labeling. I want them to understand and be able to do the math correctly and the labels are part of that. Correct math and no or haphazard labeling feels like laziness.
