Answer:

1) There are 4 types of verbs. a) Action: something is done ex: go, do, fall, read, splash, leap, pick, stop, dance, make, kiss b) Saying ex: say, whisper, shout, call, yell, announce c) Sensing (thinking, feeling, perceiving) ex: think, feel, love, see, hear, smell, like, want d) Relational: is, was, were, become 2) a) "walked," (3) "said," (3) "saw," "were" (2), "want," "go" b) Example: The students crept into the house. "This is scary!" whispered Mrs. H. "No it isn’t!" the students yelled. They tip-toed down the hall and they saw a staircase. They walked down the staircase. The lights were off. Now, they were all scared. "I want to go home," one of the students cried. c) Verbs can help to add mood (emotion) to the story as well as help to describe the scene. For example, someone "creeping" down the hallway paints a different picture in the reader's mind than someone "running" down the hallway. It also helps to keep your writing interesting for the reader.

Question:

What are some strategies to help you organize information into categories?

Answer:

Organizing information into categories is very helpful for studying for a test or quiz. By organizing information into categories, you can make connections between concepts which will help you remember them more. It also helps to break up the information into chunks to study. That being said, there are many ways to organize information into categories! Here are a few: 1. Color coding notes: Use a highlighter, colored pen, or colored pencil to underline or circle information in your notes according to a certain color code. For example, important people can be assigned the color green, important theories purple, dates blue, etc. You can also use certain colors to help you organize information that you might need to study more. For example, you can underline information that you are confused about in red, so you know to ask you teacher. 2. Sort flashcards: If you make flashcards from your notes to help you study, you can sort them into piles by category. These categories can be anything that you feel will help you remember the information (different time periods, different topics, theory or person, significance, and more). You can then study these categories. 3. Make a list: Create a list based off your notes. Each heading is a new category, and create bullet points with information underneath. Looking over these and making sure you understand each of the bullet points is also a great way of testing yourself.

Answer:

a. i) 4,578 = 4 thousands, 5 hundreds, 7 tens, 8 ones ii) 8,389 = 8 thousands, 3 hundreds, 8 tens, 9 ones b. 8 + 9 = 17 70 + 80 = 150 500 + 300 = 800 4,000 + 8,000 = 12,000 12,000 + 800 + 150 + 17 = 12,967 OR 4,570 + 8,380 = 12,950 4,578 - 4,570 = 8 8,389 - 8,380 = 9 8 + 9 = 17 12,950 + 17 = 12,967
