devise memory aids for any five terms relating to the musculoskeletal system

  • Medical Terminology -

    One of the best memory aid is using the initial letters of a phrase or sentence or series of items to make a silly sentence:

    The colors in the spectrum -- ROY G BIV ~~>red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ROY_G._BIV
    (There's even an art gallery in Palm Springs, CA, with this mnemonic as its name!)

    The order of operations for math -- PEMDAS -- please excuse my dear aunt sally ~~>parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction

    ... and many others.

    Think of some lists or phrases you need to memorize and then make up your own mnemonic.
