For many people, the words "flash cards" remind them of the way they learned multiplication tables in elementary school.
The beauty of making up flash cards is that they help you to take advantage of short periods of time throughout your day because they can so easily be taken anywhere you go.
The easier you make it for yourself, the more likely you are to do it!
As you learn concepts and definitions, put those cards aside and concentrate on the new or more difficult information. Then take out the "old cards" that contain information you know pretty well to refresh your memory.
Here are some hints for making flash cards:
Put terms on one side with definitions and examples on the other side.
Place types of math problems on one side with examples on the other side.
Draw an illustration on one side with an arrow pointing to the part you need to know and place the answer on the other side.
