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.
