Have not updated for ages. But have been busy developing mind palaces and prioritising the information I want to remember. The main reason for posting is because I have reach Level 5 in the memorising numbers in Memory League.

Ewww! 30 numbers next.......the next progress blog entry for this could take some time! :-)
I've updated our "learning equations" discussion over on the Tips page, so I wanted to share it here. Generally I avoid mnemonics when it comes to equations, but I've added an example of how I'd memorize 4/3 pi r^3 with memory techniques at the bottom.
How can I use memory techniques to learn equations?
Generally, I try to avoid "memorizing" equations. Again, the goal here is to learn efficiently by giving tangible meaning to what you're learning. In the case of equations, true understanding should be achievable, so memory techniques should generally take a backseat.

How many memory palaces do you have? Chances are you might not have enough palaces or locations to store information. This is a problem!
