  • Introduction

    During the spring of 2008 the author, Kenneth Leroy Busbee, did some research with students taking a computer programming fundamentals course to determine if using 3x5 cards would improve student performance on exams. In short, it did! This was not a surprise, but it became obvious that most of us (faculty at all levels of education as well as students) have little understanding of how are brain builds understanding and long term memory.

    Attached are several PowerPoint presentations that have been save in an Adobe PDF format. Please spend a few minutes reviewing the information provided. Hopefully it will help students to better learn the subjects they are studying.
