“Study hard what interests you the most in the most irreverent and original manner possible.”

— Richard Feynman - 理查德-费曼

Richard Feynman (1918–1988) was a scientific legend, a physicist whose insatiable curiosity and boundless brilliance transformed the field of quantum mechanics and quantum electrodynamics. He was a master communicator, distilling complex ideas into simple, accessible explanations, and inspiring a love of learning in all who encountered him.
理查德-费曼(1918-1988 年)是科学界的传奇人物,这位物理学家以其永不满足的好奇心和无穷的才华改变了量子力学和量子电动力学领域。他是一位传播大师,将复杂的思想提炼成简单易懂的解释,激发了所有接触过他的人对学习的热爱。

Feynman’s distinctive approach to science and learning set him apart from his peers. He was a master of analogy, using simple stories and examples to explain complex scientific concepts to anyone who would listen, regardless of their background or prior knowledge.

He encouraged his students to ask questions, to think for themselves, and to challenge their own assumptions. He believed that learning should be an active, engaging process, and he used his trademark humor and enthusiasm to bring the material to life and inspire his students.

Richard Feynman had a notebook in which he recorded the things he didn’t know about as a way to stay engaged with the learning process and deepen his understanding. He believed that the act of writing down complex concepts in one’s own words was an effective way to identify gaps in understanding and to solidify the material in long-term memory.
理查德-费曼(Richard Feynman)有一个笔记本,他把自己不知道的东西记录下来,以此来保持对学习过程的投入,加深理解。他认为,用自己的语言写下复杂的概念,是找出理解上的差距和巩固长期记忆材料的有效方法。

The notebook was a tool for him to continually challenge himself, stay curious, and maintain a lifelong love of learning.

His biographer James Gleick wrote in his book “Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman”:

“In preparing for his oral qualifying examination, a rite of passage for every graduate student, he chose not to study the outlines of known physics. Instead, he went up to MIT, where he could be alone, and opened a fresh notebook.”
"在准备资格口试的过程中" "这是每一个研究生的必经之路" "他没有选择去研究已知物理学的大纲相反,他独自一人来到麻省理工学院 打开了一本崭新的笔记本"

On the title page he wrote: NOTEBOOK OF THINGS I DON’T KNOW ABOUT. For the first but not last time he reorganized his knowledge. He worked for weeks at disassembling each branch of physics, oiling the parts, and putting them back together, looking all the while for the raw edges and inconsistencies. He tried to find the essential kernels of each subject.”

“When he was done he had a notebook of which he was especially proud. It was not much use in preparing for the examination, as it turned out.

Feynman’s Notebook Method involves writing down explanations of the subject in one’s own words as if teaching it to a fellow student. The goal is to identify gaps in understanding and to solidify the material through active recall and critical thinking.

This method applies to a variety of subjects and is popular among students and learners who want to deepen their understanding of a subject.

This Notebook Method is helpful in the following ways:

  • Enhances understanding: By rephrasing abstract concepts in simple terms, it helps to better understand and retain information.
  • Encourages active recall: Writing down explanations requires actively recalling and using the information, which reinforces learning.
  • Identifies weaknesses: If a concept is difficult to explain, it may indicate a gap in understanding and the need for further study.
  • Personalizes learning: By using one’s own words, the method personalizes learning and makes it easier to connect with the material on a deeper level.

“You keep on learning and learning, and pretty soon you learn something no one has learned before.”

― Richard Feynman - 理查德-费曼

Overall, the Feynman Notebook Method is an effective way to deepen one’s knowledge of a subject and improve one’s ability to think critically and communicate effectively.
总之,"费曼笔记本教学法 "是加深对某一学科的了解,提高批判性思维能力和有效沟通能力的有效方法。
