Would the responses to this FRQ from AP classroom satisfy the rubric points for the 2 terms below? Thank you so much for taking time to review this, it’s really appreciated!
Chandler and Alex were transferred to a new city and needed to find a new home. They carefully considered every house within their price range and finally purchased one that met all their criteria.
Explain how each of the following is related to their decision to buy the home.
*** Prefrontal cortex**
The prefrontal cortex is the part of the brain that is located in the frontal lobe and helps in directing thoughts, going after goals, and anticipating consequences. In this case, the prefrontal cortex is related to pursuing goals because eventually, it was their goal to find a new home, and because the couple had certain criteria they had to meet when deciding which house to buy, they had to consider each one separately all of which relate to the functions of the prefrontal cortex.
An algorithm is a method of problem solving which basically guarantees that the needed solution will be found, going step by step. In this case, Chandler and Alex both had a price range that they preferred, and they evaluated each and every house and considered whether each house met their criteria. Since they did this step by step and evaluated each and every house, they would be guaranteed to find a solution (new home).
