Using Mnemonics as a Memorization Tool
A mnemonic is a memorization tool that will help you recall a variety of information. Whether learning a list of items, the order of items, or the steps of a process, mnemonics make it easy to recall otherwise difficult to remember information. You may already be familiar with using mnemonics. "Please excuse my dear Aunt Sally" is a common mnemonic used to help students remember the order of operations in algebra: parentheses, exponents, multiply, divide, add, and subtract.
