Students need to Read, Write, Talk and Play Mathematics!
@ Use Math Dictionaries with Math Textbooks to create: Restated definition with Supporting example(s)! @
@ Use WWW informational and interactive web sites to enhance knowledge and computational skills! @
@ Virtual Math Manipulatives can visual illustrate beyond with hands-on activities! @
Benjamin Bloom’s Taxonomy defines Comprehensive Knowledge
Application Level: Using Basic Knowledge to Solve Problems

The following pages attempt to provide simple examples for teachers to use
as checklists to assess student’s fundamental fnowledge of mathematics.
A. Students should be able to provide restated textbook definition(s),
supporting example(s) & illustrative image(s) for conceptual assessment.
