Have you ever needed to memorize a number of objects’ names, such as word definitions in a new language, animals' names, people’s names, or tree leaf shape nomenclature? If you did, you might have employed a useful tool, known as the flashcard. By creating cards with questions, pictures, or terms on one side and answers, names, and descriptions on the other side, you can more easily perform the rote memorization of a category of things.
