I learned about the forgetting curve in AVID and they use ways to revisit student’s notes to combat this. For the last 8 years I have been creating my own curriculum from the standards or benchmarks. I teach students trying to graduate high school and that are in need of a passing score on the state math test. The textbook for this course starts with multistep equations and moves quickly into quadratics. My students can barely do a two-step equation and forget inequalities.
So my big takeaway from this video is to revisit the concepts over and over in small incremental steps. I am excited to see learn how to use the Tasks from this website to help my struggling students and spiral the lessons.
