Geometry Acrostics

Update Aug 4 2014 Connection words are in bold Interference fixes The instructions are in the deck. tag: "guide" Acrostics have a particular advantage over other mnemonic methods. Memory connections for English, math, science, foreign languages, and other subjects can be created well in advance of learning the material. The process can be described as a sort of "pre-loading" of the material into memory. Anyone of reading age can utilize this advantage. This system was created to replace traditional forms of memorization and fill in a number of missing elements in the memory recall process. Identification problem: The student remembers the formula/procedure/steps but does not remember its name or application. solution: The topic ID is at the head of the acrostic. Here is an example. Adding and subtracting terms- [for fractions- same denominator/for polynomials- same exponent and variable/for radicals- same index and radicand] Verification problem: The student remembers the formula/procedure/definition but is unsure of the accuracy of the recall. solution: A weakened or an interference-ladened recall can be verified via interconnections to the retrieval cue, material, or the acrostic. Categorization problem: The student has forgotten that a formula/procedure/definition exists. solution: The category lists are maintained in memory via the spaced repetition system. problem: The student does not know what to do or where to begin solving the math problem. solution: Parts of the math problem can be identified and matched to their category. problem: The student creates his or her own rule or procedure thinking that the rule or procedure exists and is valid. solution: Every action in the example has an ID and is maintained in memory by the spaced repetition system. Elaboration problem: The student has partially or completely forgotten a formula/procedure/definition. solution: The acrostic is interconnected with the material and is maintained in the spaced repetition system. The topic ID and subcategories are used as retrieval cues to help recall the acrostic and the material. Here is an example. (The connection words TF are in bold) A S T [ F... P... R... ] Adding and subtracting terms- [for fractions- same denominator/for polynomials- same exponent and variable/for radicals- same index and radicand] Assisted initial repetition problem: New material requires a large amount of initial drill. solution: For new material, the acrostic letters and knowledge of the material are used to assist the initial recall of new material. An example of the process ------------------------------------ 3 on the answer button graph is the number of retrieval cue successes. 2 on the answer button graph is the number of retrieval cue failures. Learning stage Over-learning stage (Workload starts to decrease) In this stage, over-learning and the spacing effect pushes the cards into maturity. [35] [10] Majority mature stage (Workload decreases to very small numbers) You should wait until the cards have reached this stage before you use the system for a test. You should also be able to recall the category lists. [8] [5] Here are scans of my preparation for two tests.

Sample (from 76 notes)

Cards are customizable! When this deck is imported into the desktop program, cards will appear as the deck author has made them. If you'd like to customize what appears on the front and back of a card, you can do so by clicking the Edit button, and then clicking the Cards button.

Front Learning instructions---------------------------------Hit show answer and read the sentence.Cover the sentence with an "always on top" window and recall the sentence using the letters. If you fail, reread and attempt another recall from the beginning. Repeat the process untill you can fully recall the sentence.Read the material and attempt to recall using the letters if you fail reread the material and repeat the attempt.If you successfully recalled both hit good(10m).When the card reappears type in the ID letters and use your knowledge of the material/acrostic to fill in known letters to help recall the acrostic.Fail --> reread the sentence/material and hit again(1m).Success --> good(1d)    Review instructions------------------------------Type in the ID letters and attempt to recall the ID without the assistance of the material or the other half of the acrostic.Conditions for 1  Could not recall the acrostic(red).Conditions for 2  Could not initially recall the ID letters, but recalled the acrostic.Conditions for 3  Initially recalled the ID letters(within 1 minute) and the acrostic.Category acrostic instructions---------------------------------------------Use the same techniques as above and finish the deck. After a few reviews(you are comfortable recalling the acrostics) reschedule the category cards as new.  [browse -> edit -> reschedule]Cover the list with an "always on top" window and recall the list using the letters. It is best to recall 4 items on the list then recall the next 4 and so on.  For reviews, recall the acrostic and the list. If you recall the acrostic, but cannot recall the list use 2. Tips--------- Since the material/acrostics are interconnected, you can switch back and forth during a recall attempt.Use the ID and "for statements" as guideposts during recall attempts.Verify the recall by comparing the letters of the acrostic with the letters of the material before you show the answer.If you are new to spaced repetition systems withhold judgement of your performance and the effectiveness of the system untill you have finished the deck and the cards are maturing.The workload will slowly decrease In the overlearning stage(a finished deck). If you decrease the size of the intervals you can maintain the same workload and get a higher performance.[deck options -> interval modifier]Your srs workload should always match your level of motivation(how you feel towards reviews).If you feel the reviews are a burden reduce the workload by modifying the timeboxing options.The program Deskpins can be used to create an "always on top" window.There are three types of recall.Full decay-  The retrieval cue and the material does not help to recall the acrostic. (green failure)Partial decay- The retrieval cue does not help to recall the acrostic, but the material does. (2)Normal recall- The retrieval cue helps to recall the acrostic.  (3)

Nice, even without acrostics

For me acrostics are painful and time-consuming... But I guess it's up to your way of memorizing things! Anyway, you can delete it and keep an excellent deck of geometry, with concise descriptions and clear pictures.
