Constructivism Quiz

I prepared this quiz to assure that all of you are learning the material I am teaching. The information on this quiz is from the power point presentation I gave in class Monday.

This quiz is about the constructivism theory and the main points about it. If you paid attention in class and briefly studied the information before-hand then you should do well on this ten question quiz. Good luck! (I did not create the first two questions, answer however you would like. They will not affect your grade.)
