Improving Memorization with Cognitive Thinking

Acellus is putting cognitive science to work. Acellus presents lessons in a way that fills up the student's working memory so that the new bits of knowledge go directly into implicit memory.   Memorizing important information is critical to advancing to more difficult concepts. Examples include math facts and physics equations. Beginning readers need to memorize common words because the time needed to sound out words phonetically often degrades comprehension.
