Cognitive load refers to the total amount of mental effort being using by working memory, or, as it is more commonly known, short-term memory in the completion of a task. Take this example which requires a great deal of working memory to solve: Andrew is forty years old. Carrie is four years older than Jane who is two years younger than Andrew. Jane is twice the age of Sue who is the same age as Bill who is one year younger than Pam. How old is Pam? Cognitive Load Theory states that when working memory is over worked or overloaded, the resulting learning will be of less importance than if working memory was not over worked or overloaded.

As each student came into the class, they were given one question each. They were asked to sit at a table with others who had the same question. There are 24 in the group so roughly 3 students per question.
