Feynman Problem-Solving Algorithm

‘Why’ is the question to gain understanding. Don’t stop thinking: Ask questions, challenge orthodox thinking and be curious. Thinking like a scientist sounds an ideal approach for nursing education for a dynamic, critical thinking and evidence based curriculum. Feynman provides an energy and enthusiasm for teaching, and breaks down complex topics into relevant and meaningful content.

“Feynman opposed rote learning or unthinking memorization and other teaching methods that emphasized form over function” (Wikipedia, 2018).

  • Hi,

    My name is Jimmy and I am the content manager for My Speed Reading which is a speed reading website. I have been exploring reading and educational courses websites and came across your site end read “Feynman Problem-Solving Algorithm”.

    I was wondering if you ever have guest bloggers contribute to your site? If so, would love you to consider a piece of mine. I have a few banked up as yet that I could share with you, or if you have a particular subject you may want written on I am more than happy to research it and write one for your website (free of charge; I do not expect payment). I am a speed reader myself and am extremely passionate about the field of speed reading.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Kind regards
