Mental Math Experiment: Reload

2012-09-10 20:51:51

It's been a long time since I made a record in the blog about the mental math experiment.

At first I had sickness that kicked my brains out of sharp state for about a decade. Then I had a lot of work on my regular job and on site too. So I interrupted my training until better times.

And now I feel the time has come to continue training.

As I was not able to do all two-month training in a row I think the experiment is to be aborted. Now I will just post my experience from doing n-back and mental math trainings as well as my current results.

Yesterday I resumed my trainings.

There were some training days before yesterday, but the sessions were too short, more like warm-up and not the full training.

And when I started mental math exercise yesterday I had a great discouragement doing it. As I mentioned in my previous posts, I decided to add some changes to the mental math exercise.

One of them was to hide the expression to be calculated. And when I started doing the exercise, not seeing the expression, it was a complete disaster.

Before, my best result was 60% on 3x3 multiplication and now I can hardly do 60% with 3x2 multiplication. So my goal is farther that it seemed to be for me.

And it's a good challenge for me to achieve my goal.
