The Depth and Complexity Icons are visual prompts that help students go beyond the basic understanding of a concept and boost their ability to think critically. These critical thinking tools help students dig deeper into a concept and understand that concept with greater complexity. These icons were based upon the work of Sandra Kaplan.
