For lists[ edit ] A common mnemonic for remembering lists is to create an easily remembered acronym, or, taking each of the initial letters of the list members, create a memorable phrase in which the words with the same acronym as the material. Mnemonic techniques can be applied to most memorisation of novel materials.
Tera, Peta, Exa, Zetta, Yotta byte.
The order of flats is the reverse: To memorise the North American Great Lakes: Reduction is Addition of electrons and occurs at the Cathode; Oxidation is Loss of electrons and occurs at the Anode. To memorise the names of the planets and Pluto, use the planetary mnemonic: For example, the first 15 digits of the mathematical constant pi 3.
Piphilology is the practice dedicated to creating mnemonics for pi. Begin by holding out both hands with all fingers stretched out. Now count left to right the number of fingers that indicates the multiple.
Bend this finger down and count the remaining fingers. Fingers to the left of the bent finger represent tens, fingers to the right are ones. For remembering the rules in adding and multiplying two signed numbers, Balbuena and Buayan made the letter strategies LAUS like signs, add; unlike signs, subtract and LPUN like signs, positive; unlike signs, negativerespectively.
A useful such technique is to find linkwordswords that have the same pronunciation in a known language as the target word, and associate them visually or auditorially with the target word. Spanish verb forms and tenses are regularly seen as the hardest part of learning the language. With a high number of verb tenses, and many verb forms that are not found in English, Spanish verbs can be hard to remember and then conjugate.
The use of mnemonics has been proven to help students better learn foreign languages, and this holds true for Spanish verbs.
A particularly hard verb tense to remember is command verbs. Command verbs in Spanish are conjugated differently depending on who the command is being given to. This mnemonic helps students attempting to memorize different verb tenses.
An example here is to remember the Spanish word for "foot," pie, [pee-ay] with the image of a foot stepping on a pie, which then spills blue filling blue representing the male gender of the noun in this example.

In a study conducted by Doornhein and De Haan, the patients were treated with six different memory strategies including the mnemonics technique.
The results concluded that there were significant improvements on the immediate and delayed subtest of the RBMT, delayed recall on the Appointments test, and relatives rating on the MAC from the patients that received mnemonics treatment.
However, in the case of stroke patients, the results did not reach statistical significance.
In one such experiment, subjects of different ages who applied mnemonic techniques to learn novel vocabulary outperformed control groups that applied contextual learning and free-learning styles. Mnemonic learning strategies require time and resources by educators to develop creative and effective devices.
The most simple and creative mnemonic devices usually are the most effective for teaching. In the classroom, mnemonic devices must be used at the appropriate time in the instructional sequence to achieve their maximum effectiveness. Five years after a mnemonic training study, a research team followed-up community-dwelling older adults, 60 years of age and over.
Delayed recall of a word list was assessed prior to, and immediately following mnemonic training, and at the 5-year follow-up. Overall, there was no significant difference between word recall prior to training and that exhibited at follow-up. However, pre-training performance gains scores in performance immediately post-training and use of the mnemonic predicted performance at follow-up.
Individuals who self-reported using the mnemonic exhibited the highest performance overall, with scores significantly higher than at pre-training.
The findings suggest that mnemonic training has long-term benefits for some older adults, particularly those who continue to employ the mnemonic.General information on how to attract nesting bluebirds, including distinguishing nests and eggs of other cavity nesters, heat, dealing with house sparrows, data on bluebird trail.
