I'm curious if talking aloud while doing math helps.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know from experience that it helps with arithmetic and some calculations.

I've tried talking while doing more advanced math, and I'm not sure if I am doing better because I'm talking or because I'm writing at a slower pace, and not my usual speed (I can solve some problems faster than I can speak at times).

I am very right-handed, so I would think I'm left brain dominant. Then again, it's pop-psychology, so who knows?

Any thoughts?
