Memory Athletes use techniques and tricks that enable them to remember long lists of information. Research shows that students who use memory strategies perform better academically, because these strategies help expand working memory and access long term memory.

The One About Making Math Easier

Welcome to Season 3 of School Dazed!  Many of us grew up believing that we didn't have math minds. Our guest would argue that educators have "taken the language of math and abstracted it beyond recognition, and that's why kids are confused." Dr. Randy Palisoc is 6th grade math teacher and in his TED Talk, "Math Isn't Hard, It's A Language" he explains how math can be made accessible for all students.
