>> Think A Link
Just in time for the start of the academic year, here’s a handy learning tool, which harnesses the power of corny punning to commit facts, details spellings and the occasional square root to memory.
For example, when memorising the bones of the body, you’ll know that a mandible is a jaw bone by practising this pithy refrain:
“I went out for a meal the other night. Man, der bill was jaw-dropping!!”
The site’s extensive database of learning links are organised into categories like the Meaning Of Words, Historical Dates, Squared & Cubed Numbers, Battles & Wars, The Periodic Table and many more.
You can rate each pun or link and add your own suggestions to improve on the links already published to help memorise a particular fact.
