i just turned off lapse steps for math problems deck — now when i get something wrong, it stays as a "learned" card, but the new interval is just 90% of the previous interval. my goal is to just keep the number of reviews down. if i've reviewed a problem and given it a fair shot, then even if i get it wrong i don't want to do it again in 16 hours (which was the old learning step). an interesting problem could happen where i keep getting the problem wrong — it's like i never learned how to do it. anyway, time will tell. the problem with anki, as i've remarked on before, is that these personal experiments take time, because you need a few months to forget things to see how well they've worked or not. -- in this case i think it turned out fine. i'm still using this option.

Something I might do in the future is to make multiple deck options, because for some problems I am fine with only doing them at a much reduced frequency (say, ask me again in three months, then a year, and so on).
