Mathalicious: I Remember

How much should you trust your memory?

How much should you trust your memory? According to neuroscientists, every time you remember something, you alter the memory a bit. The more you remember an event, the less accurate the memory becomes.

In this lesson, students use exponential decay to model memory fidelity and debate whether a bad memory is a good thing.
