how many chunks of information can working memory hold

4

1

what is chunk

mental leap that helps you unite bits of information together through meaning

2

when does brain not working

angry, stressed, afraid

3

7 steps to build powerful chunks

1. work a key problem through on papy
2. repeat the problem, pay attention to the key process
3. take a break
4. repeat problem and sleep
5. another repetition
6. add a new problem
7. do active repetition

4

what is the effective way than re-read

recalling

5

chunking helps

increase the amount of working memory

6

building chunk library helps

build intuition in problem solving

7

how to build chunk library

focus on the toughest aspects of problem solving

8

what are the creation of memory traces

focused practice and repetition

9

3 steps to form a chunk

1. focus attention on the information
2. understand the basic idea
3. gaining context to see how and when to use this chunk

10

concepts of understanding

like reading map. pay attention to the problem, focus on the connection between steps to solve problem

11

the 2 ways of learning

bottom-up chunking, big picture

12

big picture

allows you to see where and what you are learning fits in

13

bottom up chunking

practice and repetition help build and strengthen each chunk, so you can easily gain access to it

14

what is a context

going beyond initial problem, seeing it more broadly, repeat practice related and unrelated problems so you see when to use the chunk

15

describe slow hunch method

having mental access to aspects of an idea

16

recalling material when you are outside your usual study place will

help you strengthen your grasp of the material with different perspective

17

what's interleaving

practice by doing a mixture of different kinds of problems requiring different strategies
