    Repitition and accomidation. Repeating information over and over again. WHen there is no prior knowledge in the brain it is forced to remember things from repitition If the brain can not assemble the information it will accomadate it.

    Assimilation is when you use previous learned knowldge and apply it to current problems which makes it easier to learn.

     

    Ex. If you know algebra 2 you will understand pre-cal much easier instead of trying to learn without it.

    1. Clear your mind.

    2. Divide the information into small chunks.

    3. Separate pieces of information into increasingly larger pieces.
    4. Repeat the information several times.
    5. Rethink the information over a period of time once it has been memorized.

    Assimilation

     

    When you use the method of assimilation, you are linking knowledge that you have previously contained within your mind to the new information in order to make remembering the new information easier. 

     

    A great deal of this method is used with mnemonic functions which often consists of taking the first words in each new piece of technology and relating it to a word with the same letter.

     

    An example is the order of operations in math.  Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, and Subtraction. 

     

    If you take the first letters for each, you get PEMDAS.  Using those letters, you get the phrase Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally which in turn helps you remember the order of operations.

    Chunking, Chunking is the process in which to break down large pieces of information into small groups. if we needed to remember 9 things, it would be easier to break those 9 pieces into 3 groups.

    A good way to convert short term memory into long term memory would be to say or practice the thing you are trying to remember. Also, doing these practices for a long period of time helps you remember.

    Mnemonic devices are used to help move short-term memory to long-term memory. Mnemonic devices are used to help you remember words, lists, etc. Usually, the mnemonic devices are rhymes or formulas.

    Sleeping:

     

    By getting a good night's sleep at night, one allows the mind to collect, analyze, store, and organize the various amounts of information collected throughout the day. This allows for quick access and quick transfer to long-term access if the information in question is studied before going to bed. This way, the information is fresh on the mind in the coming morning.

    Relate new information to things you already know:

     

    When you are studying unfamiliar material, take the time to think about how this information relates to things that you already know. By establishing relationships between new ideas and previously existing memories, you can dramatically increase the likelihood of recalling the recently learned information.

    Relate new information to things you already know. When you do this you will remember it better, because you already know old information and when you relate new info to old it makes it much easier to remember.
