This paper describes how to make metric learning easier. The Learning Contract is important because it serves as the frame in learning. In frame 1, the learning objective or goal was defined in the simplest terms that one can muster. In frame 2, one look ahead to visualize the learning program. Frame 3 requires the user to think about what he already know and about what he truly need to know to achieve what he had first written in the first two frames. Frame 4 is where one identifies the most important need to achieve his competency. In Frame 5, one specify the resources required for the learning program. Completing a learning program is a significant achievement. Significant achievements deserve significant rewards.
