5 Ways to Study with a Matrix Chart
The video will describe five different ways to use a matrix chart for studying purposes.
In our first video, we showed you how to create a matrix chart, which helps you summarize and integrate related information in one place.
Now we’re going to show you 5 different ways you can use your matrix chart to study.
#1 Summarize. When you summarize in your chart, you’re already reviewing your course material and making decisions about what is most important to remember.
#2 Recall. Read your matrix chart and try to recall more detailed information from your notes or textbook.
#3 Identify Gaps. You might need to use other sources, or just look through your lecture notes or textbook more thoroughly.
#4 Compare and Contrast. You can also use your matrix chart to compare and contrast relationships between concepts.
#5 Test yourself. You can test your knowledge by reordering or regrouping the information on your chart.
You can also make a blank chart and fill it in, or just cover up parts of your chart to see what you remember.
In conclusion, matrix charts are a study tool to help you summarize, recall, identify gaps, compare and contrast concepts, and test yourself.
