Murray, Susan L.; Phelps, Julie; Altabbakh, Hanan – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2018
It is common for college classes to contain basic information that must be mastered before learning more difficult concepts or applications. Many students struggle with learning facts, terms, or fundamental concepts; in some situations, students are even unsure about what they should study. Flashcards are a well-established educational aid for…
