  • Provide your classmates with mnemonics you use to easily remember complex concepts
  • Ask and give guidance on ways to interpret the information
  • Provide links to helpful YouTube videos or websites

  • Change your profile picture. Firecracker uses a service called Gravatar to serve up your image. Go to and sign up using the same email address you used on Firecracker. Your image will automatically show up when you refresh the page.

We know these comments will give you even more ways to learn from your peers.

For the love of learning,
