How to Learn Stuff

There are two aims of this document.

First I want to introduce you to evidence for practices that improve learning that I have recently stumbled upon. That's the essence of 'Part I'.

The second half of the document (cunningly called 'Part II') is devoted to answering the question: 'So, how can I use the theory to improve the way that I learn stuff?'. It shows you basic easy-to-master techniques for acquiring knowledge, understanding, and applying it.

Techniques that you can apply to any course, on any subject, to do as well as you possibly can on the course.

This document is mainly aimed at my Maths and Physics students, but should be applicable to any course, from A-level up. All the examples are to do with Maths or Physics, but could be replaced by ones relevant to other courses.
