They had to recall the board. o Solution: experts recalled much more; they would put a few pieces down, pause to recall where the next set of pieces would go, put those down, and so forth (they had a strategic function within the game). Experts relate pieces of a domain to one another and set different subgoals. Physics problem study: Both experts and novices were shown a set of physics problems. How did they go about solving 2 at a time? o Solution: Novices groups the two problems that had similar objects while experts grouped the problems that had similar principles 3.

    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.
