The back of a spoon is convex.The way I remember the difference between convex and concave is by remembering that a cave is something that can be entered.

The difference between concave and convex is that convex lenses are the type of lens that make images bigger, while concave make images smaller. Still confused, maybe this will help. When you think of concave think of a cave, how you can see a small image at the end of the cave, while convex is the opposite.
