Memory has several pathways Memory is made up of multiple systems that can work independently of one another
Repeated Exposure Versus Deep Processing
How many times do you need to see a new concept before you can remember it? Rate on a scale of 1 to 10 your ability to remember information if you see it: 10 times 100 times 1000 times
Which is the correct Penny?
How to Study Actively
Learning a word list Pleasant Words For each word, think about the thing it stands for and rate it from1 to 10. Do NOT write anything down. Scale 1= very unpleasant 5= neutral 10= pleasant It is known that people differ in how pleasant they believe different words are. We are going to demonstrate the “pleasantness” value of a list of words.
Pleasant Word 1. coin 2. trail 3. deep 4. fish 5. skate 6. flower 7. bird 8. coat 9. church 10. clock 11. sample 12. metal 13. fork 14. bank 15. move 16. travel 17. truck 18. paint 19. rain 20. grass 21. Pocket 22. time 23. pipe 24. soap
Learning a word list “e” recall Number a page For each word, decide if it contains the letter ‘e.’ If it does, make a mark on a sheet of paper. If it does not, do nothing Scale 1= very unpleasant 5= neutral 10= pleasant Now we are going to carry out a demonstration that will illustrate some important facts about how people deal with information. The first step in studying well is to be sure you have adequately ‘gotten the facts.’
