The Memory Matrix is a table divided into rows and columns used to organize information and illustrate relationships. The completed matrix can be used to help student identify areas that they don’t understand. The instructor can use them to identify areas where students are having problems and they can then provide additional instruction or resources as needed. Students can also use blank versions of the matrix for studying later.
Tools to Consider Using:
- Pencil and paper (in person)
- Convert to a Google Doc or Form and share with students prior to class (in person or online). Students can submit by sharing the URL for the file.
- Canvas assignment (in person or online) - students upload the document or scan their matrix into a pdf and upload.
