Mnemonic memory

--22 Sep 2021

Couple days ago, I had a science lesson and we had to remember the different phases of a biological process. So the teacher did what all teachers do and wrote a way to remember them.

It was "I picked my arse today class"1, and everyone burst into hysterics after hearing that.

But there are other mnemonics taught in school, how I learnt the solar systme was "My Very Educated Mother Served Us Noodles"2.

They're meant to help you understand and they can actually work3 and are an interesting way of teaching.


[1] Hilarious I know.

[2] Year 2s rejoice (1st grade for the Americans in the audience)

[3] 6 year olds have brains like sponges though so.
