Concepts, Facts and Procedures

“Once you’ve gotten a handle on why you’re learning, you can start looking at how the knowledge in your subject is structured. A good way to do this is to write down on a sheet of paper three columns with the headings “Concepts,” “Facts,” and “Procedures.”

“Concepts are ideas that you need to understand in flexible ways in order for them to be useful”

“Facts are anything that suffices if you can remember them at all. You don’t need to understand them too deeply, so long as you can recall them in the right situations”

“Procedures are actions that need to be performed and may not involve much conscious thinking at all”
