I am able to discern one dot difference. I am able to score a perfect score on this test. I am good at math, I see the girl spinning clockwise. If I can tell one dot difference certainly a baby who has the ability can. In order to get it right they have to flashed fast so you will use your right brain. Go with your instinct (right brain) to get them right. I think this proves the Doman method. We can discern quantity with our right brain. This is an inante abilty we are born with, maybe some more then others. If you have this ability, you are good in math. So training your baby to do this should improve their ability in math.

This test has convinced me. If I can do it, surely a baby who has not lost his abilities yet can do better.

I didn't do as well as you.  I'm below average at 73%.  But it was fun trying.  I hope my baby will do better than me.   Wink

It takes a while to focus and concentrate. At first when I wasn't focusing, the dots came and went too rapidly, and I started with an average of just over 50%. After focusing and getting into the rhythm, I pulled the average up to over 75%.

See our brains can perceive quantities, so obviously babies can too!

Hmmm, I got 100 twice in 10 tests but math isn't my strong point. Attached is my score smile

Something to note though, I read fairly fast so maybe this test rely greatly on how "fast" your eyes can scan the page? I'm pretty sure that I cannot perceive quantities or know the difference between 88 and 89 dot card! I don't think this exam tests quantity perception  smile

Your right brain math abilities are used for comparison of quantities and if you are able to get 10 out of 10 you are using this ability. It  does have to do with perceiving the difference in quantities (comparisons) and not counting. You may be very good in Math, but it may be society values that have convinced you that you are not.

Possibly your ability to read fast allows you to focus and use this ability better then others. I think we all have this ability to do this if you are able to focus and scan quickly. Your training to read fast probably is related to your ability to do this. Your ability to read fast would not tell you which one has more that is quantity and has nothing to do with reading. Did you count them in your mind? If you didn't count them then you perceived quantity.

That makes sense! =) Maybe it's just my attitude towards math (it's my least favorite!). One theory I'm pondering upon is maybe this exam tests how our eyes sees more yellow than blue & vice versa..it's a matter of "seeing" the more dominant color and not actually counting quantities. Why didn't it use same colors? (like show pure blue dots on one slide and more on the other and asks us which is more?)

I got 78 now, maybe try again when I can concentrate better. I am right when both colors are spread out and wrong when they are in different parts of the screen, so I think I am "matching the pairs", is that counting?
Math was my favorite in school...
