    At least I know I can get that in 20 seconds……

    He got way off topic. But somehow connected those odd thoughts together and he called it a system…

    His system works, but it is too slow.

    I think Mrs. Godfrey should let Nate have extra time to take the test, since he only got to question 2.

    No, at the end of last year he studied for his Social Studies exam and got 99%, losing 1% for not putting his name on the paper. He prioved he can do it.

    He certainly needs a new system.

    His path—although long—is association. I used it for learning the capitols of the US states. Example, capitol of Oregon is Salem. Salem Cigarettes. Capitol of Nebraska is Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln.

    Nate’s system has already plummeted.

    It’s called Mnemonics – which is using associations to remember facts.
    There are various ways to do this from a simple “Roy G. Biv” to remember the colors of the visible light spectrum(Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet) to using a “memory house” in your mind with objects emplaced there to aid your recall of certain facts. Songs, pictures, ANYTHING can be used to aid a memory – as long as it is something a person can link to the fact/ memory needed.
    Some are very simple for generally easy things, others are very complicated for remembering things like entire pages of a book word for word. The more complex the process, the higher the chance of a mistake. But the entire process is dependent on the mind of the person using it – no one system will work the same way for many people, which makes it a very difficult skill to learn or master.

    Side note – Nate is NOT doing it right. He is using a “memory path” method which can lead to mistakes and problems.

    Agreed Nate.

    They’re called Mnemonic Devices for those who don’t know, very handy for memorization. Unless, of course, you have to use 20 of them per fact.

    How does that even work?
