Popular Mnemonics: How Can You Easily Remember Things?
It can be quite difficult to remember things, especially the order of things. That is what mnemonics are for. Mnemonics are word structures that help us remember things easily. They can come in the form of, for example, acronyms or songs. “Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally” stands for the order you are supposed to solve a math equation: “Parentheses, Exponents, Multiply, Divide, Add, and Subtract.” See how much easier it is to remember the sentence rather than fragments of information? This is how the brain works- it is much each for the brain to remember continuous (and interesting) information rather than fragments of information that has to pertain to the topic.
This experiment will teach kids about a fun way they can remember this more efficiently.
