If You Can’t Explain It Simply Enough, You Don’t Understand It Well Enough

“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” – Albert Einstein

Albert was right when he made this astute remark. I remember when I was in Logic class in college years ago and I was trying to absorb the material in the brown hard back book Mr. Wolf had us study from.

I always wrote my notes out and then paraphrased them in the simplest, to-the-point way. That way, if I could explain the key points covered in each chapter to a child, I knew I understood it all & grasped the concepts.

Was there a class you were in that you found a special way to understand and/or memorize the material so you could teach it to someone else?

Share how you did it.
