EDIT: I just realized this might not be the right place for this post. I just read the Mnemonics post and went ahead. Sorry if I made a mistake.
I'm in a situation where I have about two weeks to learn 6 different sets of between 27 to 30 numbers, always ranging from 1-3 with two or possibly three exceptions.
Looking something like this:
1st set (example):
2nd set (example):
Where as the exceptions looks something like this (example):
121123133213332121,50,130,100,90,1121121212 (= one singel digit changes to 4 larger numbers, in this example: 50,130,100,90)
I have no clue how to make this. I just googled "remember numbers" today and now I have read a few pages about mnemonics. But my problem here is that the range of numbers are low and the sets are quite long. So straight alphabetic conversion and making stories doesn't really work here as I only get A, B and C to work with.
So now my thought was to make, as close as possible to, an understandable word choosing between these letters below.
There is quite a few places where there is a repetition of the same number. So using ONE letter to represent more of the same number is very useful to shorten the ˝word˝ , such as: ˝m˝ (111) or ˝n˝ (11). But how to make this for ˝22˝, ˝222˝, ˝33˝, ˝333˝?
1 = i,l,t (obvious)
11 = n,h,ll,tt (it has two legs hitting the line)
111 = m (it has three legs hitting the line)
2 = s,z (quite obvious)
22 = ss,? (Better suggestion?)
222 = ? (Help, what to do here?!)
3 = E (obvious)
33 = ? (Help, what to do here?!)
333 = ? (Help, what to do here?!)
So my thought was that now I only have to memorize 6 ˝words˝ or ˝sentences˝. Is this a good idea? It's so frustrating, I don't know how to think.
Could someone PLEASE! give me a few pointers so I have something to work with?
Thank you very much!
