Spaced Practice and Mathematics

There is plenty of support for the notion that spaced practice will help consolidate information into long term memory. For example John Hattie’s work where it rspam5anks 12th in his table of effect sizes with a value of 0.71.


So perhaps unlike the food product shown, Spaced Practice and Mathematics is good for students!


So based on this belief, I have begun to make up some S.P.A.M. sheets aligned with the Australian Curriculum.
