dc.description.abstract This study was designed to investigate the effects of instructor provided mnemonic imagery on the learning of science content and problem solving. The experiment was conducted with adult basic education students (N = 40). A number of visual anagrams were constructed which provided both the content and application of science rules. Mnemonic imagery instruction resulted in significantly higher performance on both formula recognition and multi-step problem solving tests.
