Learning New Numbers
Learning new numbers is a lot like learning new names. To remember numbers, try the following:
· Write the number down. This may be obvious, but it is by far the best way to remember something!
· Repeat the number aloud. Use a schedule of repetitions, repeating the number to yourself every 10 seconds, then later repeating it every 2 minutes, then every 15 minutes, then every hour. Spacing the intervals out will help you remember the number better.
· Make the number meaningful. Look for patterns or repetitions in the number. For example, 1-800-547-7968 -vs- 1-800-KISS-YOU.
