Spaced repetition is an approach where material is reviewed at strategic time intervals so as to increase the strength of recall as much as possible. The general idea is to space out the intervals for reviewing the material with the gap between successive review intervals growing exponentially. The theoretical rationale for increasing the spacing between successive recalls is that the forgetting curve decays exponentially.
