The Right Count

In this exercise, the user must classify numbers based upon their numerical order by either even or odd in ascending or descending order. 

Brain Areas Engaged 

Learn more about this exercise:

The prefrontal cortex participates in a variety of higher cognitive functions, such as thinking, reasoning, planning, and decision-making. 

Verbal and visual working memory are also activated with this exercise. This involves the brain system that provides for the temporary storage and manipulation of information necessary for complex cognitive tasks such as language comprehension, learning, and reasoning.

A major component of The Right Count is sequencing. Individuals use sequencing in everyday life. It helps us predict, evaluate and monitor the outcome of a situation or event. It also plays a major role in decision-making. By working on the skills required in The Right Count, the user may have a stronger ability to sequence numbers and they may be able to improve their problem-solving skills.

You can modify:

  • The play mode (even ascending, even descending, odd ascending, odd descending, or one of each)
  • The number of series (from 1 to 5)
  • The size of the grid (2×2, 3×2, 3×3, 4×3, 4×4, 5×4, 5×5, 6×5, or 6×6)
  • The time limit (unlimited, 5 minutes, 4 minutes, 3 minutes, 2 minutes or 1 minute)
  • Other options can also be enabled: hide previously sorted numbers (yes or no), restart or continue after an error.
