So, I’m a newbie at memory techniques, and I’d love to learn more. What I’ve read so far sounds extremely intriguing, and my brief experimentation with the method of loci worked so well that I’m fascinated and I want to give this a good solid try.
I’m here as much for my 5 year old daughter as I am for me. I am homeschooling her, and she’s not doing well in math because she may have a bit of a memory issue. I’ve been trying to get her to memorize simple addition problems so that she can speed up her calculations (she understands the concept just fine, but it takes her forever to add or subtract one-digit numbers), and it doesn’t seem to “stick” for her doing it the regular way.
Has anyone tried teaching these memory techniques to a child? How has it worked out for them?
