Procedural learning: requires individuals to memorize procedures but does not require the understanding of concepts.

Conceptual learning: does not require any kind of memorization, and instead focuses instead on the understanding of the concepts or structures behind different operations or procedures.

A good example: Saxon math curriculum (procedural) and Singapore Primary Mathematics curriculum (conceptual)
