Theory of Learning

Isn't it strange that, when we enter college, we find that "Learning 101" is not a required course (if it exists!)? Colleges and Universities are supposed to be centers of learning. Psychology departments often have ad-hoc courses on study habits, etc., but you would think that the science of learning would be the first order of business at any center for learning. In writing this book, I found that it was necessary to think about the learning process and to derive an equation, however approximate, for the learning rate.
