The Sequential Memory Exercise
Starting in fifth grade (sometimes sooner), children learn how do complex math problems such as long division and pre-algebra. They should already have their math facts stored in long term memory and to be able to manipulate numbers well. For some children, they reach a glass ceiling that they feel is impossible to overcome in learning math. While they did well in math before, they find themselves unable to progress in math when introduced to long division and algebra. This is usually caused by deficits in sequential memory.
Sequential memory is the ability to remember steps or sequences. The steps of a complex math problem have to be remembered in the correct order. Rules have to be remembered and applied in solving complex math problems. Sequential memory is what helps children remember steps and the proper order of these steps.
