moving back and forth very quickly and that gases are heated more quickly than liquids. The following day, she asks her class the following four questions. Which one is a higher-level question? A. "What is heat?" B. "Why is it cooler near the ocean on a hot summer day?" C. "Who can remember yesterday's discussion about heat?" D. "Which one is heated more quickly--a gas or a liquid?" 2. Which one of the following students is elaborating as he takes notes in class? A. In science, Frank is taking notes about how water expands when it freezes and adds, "That's why our fish tank broke when I left it outside last winter." B. While his math teacher demonstrates a mathematical procedure on the chalkboard, Ed writes "Meet Pat after school" in the margin of his notebook. C. In his Spanish class, Hugh writes each new vocabulary word in his notebook five times to help him remember it. D. Jason writes down every word his science teacher says, hoping that it will all make sense when he reads it later. 3. Missy is given this problem: Mt. Washington is lower than Mt. Jefferson. Mt.

Missy reads the fourth word incorrectly--she thinks the word is higher rather than lower-- and consequently answers the problem incorrectly. From the perspective of cognitive psychology, Missy's difficulty is due to: A. Her limited working memory capacity B. The way she encodes the problem C. Functional fixedness D. The fact that she is retrieving information that she has learned in a rote rather than meaningful fashion 4. Which one of the four teachers below is most likely to facilitate problem solving in the classroom? A. Ms. Axelrod wants her students to develop a single "best" strategy for encoding problems. B. Ms. Darwin wants her students to learn why heuristics are almost always better than algorithms for solving problems. C. Ms. Corning wants her students to learn why algorithms are almost always better than heuristics for solving problems. D. Ms. Blakely wants her students to have an in-depth knowledge of the topics they study. 5. Which one of the following situations best illustrates the process of elaborative
