Memorization techniques can make learning material meaningful, memorable and fun. We learn and recall information much more easily when the information is meaningful to us. This means your memorization process can become an exercise in creativity. Suppose you want to remember Newton’s second law: f = ma . This law relates force to mass and acceleration . The letter f could stand for flying, m for mule and a for whatever comes to your creative mind (apples?)! So if you want your mule to start flying faster, you have to feed it more apples . One of the best memorization techniques is creating metaphors . A metaphor lets you see how one thing is similar to another. For example, if you’re trying to understand electrical currents, it helps to visualize them as water. You can imagine the voltage as pressure on that water. Metaphors help cement ideas in your mind, because they connect them to structures that are already there.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
