Challenging the Left Brain

In most people, the left side of the brain deals with basic math (adding, subtracting, etc.) Since mathematics is one of the skills that seems to fade the most rapidly as we age, doing some exercises with numbers will help exercise that left brain. Below are some suggested exercises.

  • Mike walks a half mile in 1 minutes. How far will he walked in 2 hours?
  • Susan was five feet, six inches tall. She weighed herself one day, she weighed 170 lbs. She was disturbed and put herself on a diet for 10 weeks. She lost 3 lbs. a week. How much did she weigh at the end of 10 weeks?
