A learning curve is how quickly or slowly a person is able to master a skill or retain important information. It’s commonly used in situations where a task is difficult, new, or requires experience.

  • Trigonometry has a steep learning curve, most students struggle in the beginning.
  • The department does not track data on learning curves, though it appears most employees learn at the same pace.


  • Have you ever experienced a learning curve? Explain.
