I was introduced to SR with wanikani. I've got to say that the concept is really interesting. I was always the kind of guy who didn't need a bunch of time in class because I got concepts quickly. I wonder how much of it was because I would spend so much time thinking about the subject. I have the tendency to go over things I find interesting in my head many times over. But at the same time if you're going to ask me to memorize an arbitrary specific thing, those things fly out of my head faster than greased lightning.

Lately I was wondering how much this kind of system would work for vastly different types of data, especially things involving math. I can see it becoming useful especially with advanced high school math, where you need to remember the names of the different theories in order to write proofs, and geometry has a bunch of simple formulas you need to remember in order to solve most problems. Likewise chemistry and physics are full of mathematical formulas you need to not only memorize, but to understand the parts of it thoroughly (What's Avogadro's constant again?).

Great read. I'd heard of the concept of spaced repetition but never known how to actually implement it

I (more or less) used spaced repetition to study for a music theory exam.

I got 100%.

It works, can confirm, 10/10 would use it again
