Have you even attended a lecture and learned many new and interesting things, only to realize a few days later that you couldn't recall any of it? Most people don't have a problem learning new things, they hear them and understand them perfectly. Learning isn't the problem, recall is. It is easy for people to understand the fact "The 19th President of the United States was Rutherford B. Hayes." However, it is one thing to understand a fact, and quite another to recall it successfully days, weeks, or months later.
Exponential Nature of Forgetting
Hermann Ebbinghaus was a German psychologist who pioneered experimental study of memory. In 1885, Hermann Ebbinghaus published a paper where he described the exponential nature of memory in the equation R=e-t/s where R is memory retention, S is the relative strength of memory, and t is time.
What does this equation mean practically? Well it means that if you learned a set of 20 facts today on U.S. Presidents, and don't review them at all, then it is highly likely that in 30 days you will remember only one or two of them. In fact, only a few days after you learn a set of facts you may only be able to recall a fraction of them, unless they have somehow been reinforced. Anybody teaching or attending class, or preparing for an exam, should understand the exponential nature of memory.
