## Main Question or Discussion Point

Let's say you were proctoring some test that required proofs of Jordan canonical forms and rational canonical forms.

Would you dock points from a lazy student abbreviating the former as "J-canonical forms" and the latter as "##\mathbb{Q}##-canonical forms" in their proofs?
