All this while I am so blur that I am not sure why the Sensei in Shichida or Heguru showing flashcards session for Number Peg. In Shichida there are even number peg in Bahasa Malaysia. Until these two days when I re-read the book 超右脑照相记忆法 from Prof Shichida only I realize they are training the kids for Peg Memory.
What is number peg (mm.. or peg number 😛 ..) ?
It is a peg list, a list of items that is associated to the numbers. For e.g. the following is the simple peg list which is based on Rhyme: e.g:
After memorizing the above, if you are to remember a big number, e.g. 35821, you can use your own creativity to compose something like the following:
Another way to use the number peg is used it to memorize another list of objects.
e.g. you need to remember the list of items as below:
fox, hill, apple, sugar, sun
You can make up story like the fox is eating a bun, wearing a shoe and running on the hill, to find an apple tree, but he only sees a door with sugar and a bee hive under the sun.
Another branch of Peg Memory is associate the items with location, places or other objects like body part.
