Puzzles to keep the mind active

rain-teasers-with-answers-to.html


In case everyone doesn't read all the post. Angelfinder wants you to look at this problem and gave a site for math problems

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~
www.wpcpuzzlesonline.com/educational
-games/math-game-arithmetic

Here is part of her post:
Here's one you all can work on to see if you can help.
Simple problem really..but they keep telling me the answers are wrong...but they are not. I will use words first to show the problem.


Question:
R>____ divided by _____ Plus _____ times _____ equals 30

9 / 3 + 3 x 5 = 30 wrong
9 / 3 + 7 x 3 =30 wrong
8 / 2 +2 x 5 = 30 wrong
4 / 2 + 8 x 3 = 30 wrong

I got frustrated and quit, now it's bothering me for the right answer. Can anyone help, before I go crazy trying to figure it out? lol ( This is bad for the old brain).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'm horrible at math so I know I'm not the one to figure it out. Although, if they aren't crediting the correct answer, they should be notified. Lets see what others have to say.

  Thanks for the sites, I've tried some of them. Some are quite fun...and you can learn just how much work your brain really needs. LOL

But not to be picky, I tried the math game...simple addition work and it has me frustrated. Wonder how you can find the answers they really want?

I was doing pretty good till this one stuck me and I can't move on past it or it won't even tell me the right answer.

    Thanks for sharing. I love games! It's been fun for me to try to find exercise that feels like games or to make a game or purpose out of exercise.

How do our brains create memories?

Friday, September 20, 2013

How do our brains create memories? Are our memories stored in some sort of “memory bank”?

I found an interesting article in our newspaper. Someone asked the doctor about how our memories are storied in our brain.

    Thank for the interesting article. The brain is amazing in all of its functions and abilities........I now understand why some events are quickly forgotten and others will never be forgotten ( though I wish i could forget them )!

    Very intersting article on how the brain works... Me? Since I have deafness ( I can hear with my hearing aids even though I have severe hearing loss... I learn by listening to people conversations which sometimes works and I ask on topic they say oh we're talking on.... ( hit or miss whoops) emoticon
I learn mainly visuals and gestures ...and like studying the communication on post messages on SP... When really tired read captions on tv or movie read book or draw pictures for a while emoticon

    Interesting! The stage called acquisition? I have ADHD and years ago I learned that to remember things, I needed to ACTIVELY process whatever I was doing and not have too many things going on at once especially if what I was learning was important. Now with MS cognitive issues, I am finding out it is the same process. Once the memory is there, I do okay.Thanks for sharing! emoticon
