Chunking is the technique of organizing or combining individual parts into "chunks" so that you can break down information in smaller pieces so it's easier for your brain to digest. I think this strategy is a good source for memory because it can help you memorize things that are in groups so you don't have to continue to go back on a resource to collect information. Chunking was helpful when practicing it. It was really easy to remember a set of numbers or words in a group rather than having to go back and look at each one.
The elaboration strategy can be practiced by adding more information to the existing information to eventually create a more complex summary. This can help amplify and develop a better understanding of the original idea. I don't think the elaboration strategy works for me because i'd rather have a summed up version of a topic instead of trying to remember each specific detail or event.
First topic under Moderately Effective. Interleaved practice is when you mix up different skills and topics during one study session. This strategy is a good one to help someone who needs to study or learn multiple different topics for different academic classes. You can study various topics in one session rather than using all of your time to study only one topic. Interleaved practice is helpful because I can get more work done for multiple classes than only one.
Practice testing involves frequent testing and quizzing on a topic to encourage students to recall memory from what's been previously learned. I think that this is a good strategy because it can enhance students' learning and can help apply new information in new ways. It can also help you learn from what you don't get correct on a practice test. Practice testing benefits me academically because taking practice tests and quizzes can give me an idea of what I need to know for later along in the course and help me remember what i get wrong to prevent getting it wrong in the future.
Learning new concepts in a math class at any level of education can be challenging. The Self Explanation strategy is the practice of thinking out loud and explaining a subject deeper like elaborating on the background information. I think this can be a helpful strategy so you can strengthen your understanding of a topic so it is easier to remember. If you can explain a topic without having to rely on a resource, then it'll be much easier to recall when it's needed to be used.
