Hi every one. My name is Jan Ivan Hansen and I teach chemistry and biology at Herlufsholm boarding school, in Denmark. I have worked with memory, study skills and mnemonics for about 10 years and have written two books in Danish on the subject together with Ole G. Terney, who is a biologist and science journalist. The books are mainly about how to use mnemonics to learn chemistry and biology.
Many students find it difficult to remember the subject matter even after they have worked thoroughly with the substance. Here, mnemonics can often advantageously be used to patch the holes in the memory.
