What are flashcards?
Flashcards are a common studying tool that have been used for decades. The basic components are:
- Term: the term on a flashcard is the short word, phrase, or question that you are trying to remember.
- Definition: the definition is the meaning of the term. It can also be a fact, explanation, or answer.
While many cards will show both the term and definition on one side, the most effective cards will have the term on one side and the definition on the other.
