1.) Visualize the problem. Practice visualization skills to support visual-spatial and verbal working memory
2.) Practice, practice, practice. Repeated practice can reduce the strain on working-memory capacity.
3.) Summarize your life. Recount an experience in a concise and orderly fashion. Mathematics requires organization, precision, and keeping track of information, particularly with word problems
4.) Grab the playing cards. Play popular family games such as Uno, Crazy Eights, Memory, and Concentration that require memory and the use numbers, sets, and mathematical concepts.
5.) Write it out. Teach your child to write — rather than just remember — math facts and equations. Math word problems are frequently identified as an area of difficulty for individuals with weak working memory skills
