Visual Working Memory for Math Skills

Teacher Insights

Young children who practice visual working memory and reasoning tasks show improvement in maths score than those who focus on spatial rotation exercises, a study by Karolinska Institutet, Sweden showed. Children who did mathematical number line tasks, rotation tasks (2D mental rotation and tangram puzzle), visual working memory tasks or non-verbal reasoning tasks showed improved maths performance. Both reasoning and memory training significantly outperformed rotation training when it came to mathematical improvement. The study was done among 17,000 school children aged 6 to 8 years.
