    take no heed of vs take no notice of

    What follows below is an exercise where the task is to rewrite the sentence with a meaning as close as possible to the original.

    When I shouted at the boys to stop throwing stones they completely ignored me.

    The boys___________________when I shouted at them to stop throwing stones.

    I wrote "took no heed of me" but the correct answer seems to be "took no notice of". Would my answer have been considered wrong?

    Thank you

    Re: take no heed of vs take no notice of

    In this use, "heed" and "notice" are synonyms.
