Memory, Multiplication and Mnemonics: A Study into the Recall of Basic Multiplication Facts
Brewer, Robert A.
Online Submission
The purpose of this study is to examine what effects the mnemonic devices of pictures and stories have on the memorization and recall of multiplication facts. This study was conducted on a fourth grade classroom in which the students were divided into three groups. The first group was given standard flashcards, the second group was given a set of picture and story cards, and the third group was given both flashcards and picture/story cards. Students were initially assessed with a pre-test and subsequently given post-tests each Friday for five weeks. Results from the study suggest that students who received both the flashcards and the picture/story cards displayed the greatest success. Appended are: (1) Picture/Story Card; (2) Post-Tests; and (3) List of Scores. (Contains 6 tables.)
