This worksheet is a diagnostic tool, used to help you identify your working memory capacity,
and to demonstrate how chunking can help you memorize more, without expanding working
memory. This worksheet is not meant as a training worksheet - it’s something you can do just
Instructions: On the next page, you’ll ﬁnd a series of pyramids with numbers in them.
Your goal will be to memorize one line at a time on the ﬁrst sheet, and then write it out on a
blank pyramid on the following sheet without peeking. Starting from the top line, repeat
line-by-line, looking back to see how you did after each line.
As you get to the larger sequences of numbers towards the bottom of the pyramid, you’ll
ﬁnd that you need to chunk numbers together to remember them. Repeat for each pyramid,
paying special attention to where you start to have diﬃculty. By the 4th pyramid, you should
understand your working memory capacity - and be able to use chunking to memorize even
the bottom row in “chunks” of numbers.
Once you’ve completed this worksheet, you can apply your newfound understanding of
chunking towards the 20 random images generator.
