2.A caterpillar climbs eight inches an hour. What would this ratio be in feet per day? 8th Grade Math

A) 16 feet/day

 

Answer: A) 16 feet/day. We will use two unit converters to get from inches/hour to feet/day. Our line up look is like: (8 in/1 hr)(1 ft/12 in)(24 hr/1 day) = 16 ft/day.

 


 

3. "Schema," a mental concept we carry with us about the world around us, was a term defined byAP Psychology Semester B

 

Answer: A) Jean PiagetYessiree. Schema are central to Piaget's theory of cognitive development, which holds that kids go through various stages of cognitive growth before they're able to understand concepts like object permanence

When we sacrifice one thing so that we can have another, that’s called:

 

Answer: D) A trade-off. Only have enough cash to buy a bike or a snowboard, but not both?  That's a trade-off.  Trying to decide whether to take the Fourth of July off to spend with your family, or to go to work and make extra overtime?  That's a trade-off.

 

News Flash: Students enjoy humor.

Shmoopers tend to stick around once they give us a try. We have a knack for getting them results and making sure they don't fall asleep in the process. We love it when students laugh with (or at) us as, long as they're engaged and learning. It helps motivate them on their rigorous and effective test preparation journey.

Shmoop’s goal is to make students want to learn. We give students the tools to succeed and, along with amazing teachers and administrators, we makestudents believe they can ace any test they take. Using Shmoop in the classroom or at home is a commitmentto saying that learning is exciting, achievable, and doesn’t have to stop when the bell rings.*
