Animals have these advantages over man: they never hear the clock strike, they die without any idea of death, they have no theologians to instruct them, their last moments are not disturbed by unwelcome and unpleasant ceremonies, their funerals cost them nothing, and no one starts lawsuits over their wills.

Voltaire (1694-1778)

Split The Pack

When going through flashcards rather than put a missed card to the back of the pack split the pack so that the missed card goes somewhere in the middle.

Rationale

If a missed card goes to the back of the pack then chances are the students won't see that card again that session, or if they do manage to go through the whole deck chances are they won't remember what the card was. Splitting the pack vastly increases the chance that the students will encounter a missed card more than once. This means the students will pay more attention when you tell them the answer as they will probably keep encountering the missed card.
