Mnemonics – Another way to memorize!-part 1
Another privilege again to teach on our platform.
Let’s talk about something called Mnemonics; it’s simply a way to easily memorize important points or notes using either a song or anything fascinating where the core knowledge needed is mixed with the song/rhyme to make it easy to remember.
We will show you some mnemonics in Chemistry.
We will actually look at something different and new.
But you can always use your own words that can fit-in.

written form), Oxidation takes place }
. Red cat: Reduction at cathode; , An ox:Anode for oxidation .
Fat Cat: electrons now From Anode To Cathode.
Hope you found it fascinating and helpful.
NB: You can always add your own words for easy work.
Watch out for biology and other subjects.
