Things to know

by John Bandler

Here is a page to jump off to other "Things to Know" pages.



These are all short Q&As and cannot be expected to capture all nuances of all terms.

Purpose of these pages

These pages are a study aid for my students, and a place for me to draw quiz and assignment questions from.

The goal is for students to learn important concepts, especially foundational concepts that provide footholds for learning more complex concepts. This is the learning concept of "scaffolding", where you start low, learn things, build the knowledge and complexity of concepts up.

I used to emphasize these things only in class, quizzes, and assignments, but then realized more was needed, because by the end of the semester, some students had not learned some of these things. By providing this study page and linking to it, I find that students have more opportunity to study and then learn better and will remember long after the course is over.
