A The solution shows a deep understanding of the problem including the ability to identify the appropriate mathematical concepts and the information necessary for its solution. Student applies procedures accurately to correctly solve the problem.
B+ The solution shows that the student has a broad understanding of the problem and the major concepts necessary for its solution. Mathematical procedures were used, and correct answer may not have been achieved. Minor Revisions are suggested but not required.
B The solution shows that the student has a good understanding of the problem and the major concepts necessary for its solution. Mathematical procedures were used, but correct answer may not have been achieved. Some Revisions are suggested, but not required
C+ The solution shows that the student has more than a basic understanding of the problem and the major concepts necessary for its solution. Mathematical procedures were used, but correct answer was not achieved. Revisions are required.
C The solution addresses some, but not all of the mathematical components presented in the task. There is some evidence of mathematical reasoning. Student could not completely carry out mathematical procedures. Revisions are required.

Directions for learner
This assessment involves compiling information about an individual’s food intake over a two day period. Each question below performing calculations on the data you gathered, and summarizing the calculations and verbal descriptions of your results.
PART 1: Complete the following table.
1. List all the food that you, a friend, or a relative consumed over a two day period on the table I below.
(You must list at least 6 items for each day)
2. Conduct an internet search using Google or any other search engine to fillin the calories, fat, protein, carbohydrate, calcium (Ca), iron (Fe), vitamin A, and vitamin C on the table I below. (If the exact item is not found, use the information from a similar item)

3. Use the above table I to compute the daily consumption of calories, fat, protein, carbs, calcium (Ca), iron (Fe), and vitamin C for the two day. Fillin the Day 1, Day 2 and two Day Total columns on table II.
4. What fractional part of calories, fat, protein, carbs, calcium (Ca), iron (Fe), vitamin A, and vitamin C comes from the food consumed in Day 1. Simplify your answer to the lowest terms, whenever possible on the last column on table II.

5. What percent of the protein were consumed in Day 1?
6. What percent of the carbohydrates were consumed in Day 2?
7. If the number of grams of fat times 9 equals the total calories from fat, describe how you would determine the total number of calories came from fat over the two days.
8. If the number of grams of protein times 4 equals the total calories from protein, describe how you would determine the total number of calories came from protein over the two days.
9. If the number of grams of carbs times 4 equals the total calories from carbs, describe how you would determine the total number of calories came from carbs over the two days.
10. If the total calories you consume come from protein, fats and carbs, how would you determine the total calories you consumed over the two days?
11. How would you determine the percent of calories you consumed came from carbs?
B. Answer the following questions:
1. Why is it important that your food intake includes calcium (Ca), iron (Fe), vitamin A, vitamin C, and folic acid?
2. Use the Dietary Reference Intakes tables found on “ http://fnic.nal.usda.gov/dietaryguidance/dietaryreferenceintakes/dritables” or table below (based on a 2000 – calorie diet) to determine whether you, your friend or relatives dietary intake meet the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) for your age group and sex? If not, in what areas is it lacking? What foods could be added to increase consumption and bring up to the RDA? (Note: A pdf file of Recommended Dietary Allowances will also be made available to you on Blackboard in the event that the above link is no longer working.)

Nutrients in this table are listed in the order in which they are required to appear on a label in accordance with 101.9(c). This list includes only those nutrients for which a Daily Reference Value (DRV) has been established in 101.9(c)(9) or a Reference Daily Intake (RDI) in in 101.9(c)(8)(iv).
How to Understand and Use the Nutrition Facts Label
3. What foods in your diet are the major contributors of
Calcium? _______________________
Iron? _______________________
Vitamin A? _______________________
Vitamin C? _______________________
4. If you were to complete a food chart and found that you failed to meet the RDA in several categories, would this mean that you were headed for nutritional disorders? Explain briefly.
5. There is much interest in low fat diets today. Put together one meal having a total calorie content of at least 700 calories that has no more than 10% of the calories from fat. You do not need to have all of the foods have less than 10% of their calories from fat, but the average should be 10% or less. Try to make this something you might actually consider eating.
HINT: Start with your day that has the lowest % of calories from fat and make substitutions or additions/deletions as needed. You may want to utilize a list of foods sorted by % calories from fat that is on the webpage.
