The development of memory 10

Also, the following practice with the Schulte Tables is very useful: looking at the central cell, try to see simultaneously as many numbers as possible:

  • in opposite directions from the central cell;
  • in horizontal, vertical, diagonal lines;
  • in the cells forming the cross (straight and diagonal central lines);
  • in a small square 3×3, and the whole table.

(Switch sentences to help with flow of the text) When looking at the central cell, try to see simultaneously as many numbers as possible. The following Schulte Tables is very useful to practice:

  • in opposite directions from the central cell;
  • in horizontal, vertical, diagonal lines;
  • in the cells forming the cross (straight and diagonal central lines);
  • in a small square 3×3, and the whole table.

Hi Oleks,

 

Before I start doing these exercises, I really want to improve my score on the previous one haha! These ones sound even harder. Have you tried to time yourself doing any of them?

 

 I agree with Faye's suggestion

 

When looking at the central cell in a Schulte Table, try to see as many numbers as you possibly can at the same time . (my suggestion: "simultaneously" is a bit of a technical, complex word for a simple guide which is aimed at everyone. )

Hi Ed! I used to do this more purposefully, but now only from time to time. Thank you for your comment.
