How Does Forgetting Things Work?
In math 6Plus class, we have recently started a unit about angles. I remembered that we did this same unit in 4th grade. I assumed that we are doing this because a ton of kids are forgetting about angles and teachers want us to review it so we can remember everything and succeed in future schools, such as high school and college. I was thinking about how we forget these things so easily.
I also started thinking about how we remember things we enjoy so easily. I can't remember the definition of an adjacent angle of a period of time, although I can remember how to play Roblox from when I played it in 2015. How does that work?
Basically my wonder question was how does forgetting and remembering work? And why do I seem do remember the things I enjoy easier than the things I don't enjoy as much?
My next blog post I hope is going to be about something I learned is social studies. I will tell more about what I am learning later!
