### Higher Order Thinking Questions - Bloom's Taxonomy

I want to clarify your chapter 8 assignment; I never meant for it to be hard to understand!  I want you to write questions (and answers) using the different verbs listed under each level of thinking.  There are six different levels of thinking, listed on the sheet. Examples of words/verbs to use in the questions for each level are also listed.

### Here's an example:

Level 2: Comprehension
Verbs: confirm, explain, relate, convert, infer, match, estimate, predict, paraphrase, describe

Question: Describe, in your own words, how you graph a line using the y-intercept and the slope.

Answer: To graph a line using the y-intercept and the slope, you first graph the y-intercept. This is the b part of the equation. It is always a point (0, ___). After you graph the y-intercept you count to the next point using the given slope. This is the m part of the equation. The top number is the rise and the bottom number is the run. For example, if the slope were 2/3, you would count up 2 and then to the right 3.

I hope this makes sense! If not, ASK ME!!!

If you run out of room on your worksheet, just use another sheet of notebook paper OR you may type your questions/answers.
