Music That Puts The Cool Back In School

Rhyme ‘n Learn is math and science taught by mnemonics.  A mnemonic is a learning aid.  It uses word associations like rhymes so that a term or fact is easier to recall later.  An example of a mnemonic is “In fourteen hundred ninety two Columbus sailed the ocean blue.”  I learned that in 3rd grade.  Thanks Mrs. Erbach.

Rhyme ‘n Learn was created by meJoe Ocando.  I’ve taught math and science to students of all ages and discovered that many find it difficult to memorize hundreds of new terms and facts.  I also found that rote learning is boring and not very effective for long term retention.
