Auditory Memory v.s. Visual Memory Science Project
Transcript of Auditory Memory v.s. Visual Memory Science Project
By: Angie Hernandez
All in all, more high school students are visual learners. The students auditory memory was fairly well, but more people remembered more numbers visually than by hearing it. My hypothesis was correct.

Participants to test
Some people have a photographic memory and can memorize anything they see in minutes. Others remember almost anything they hear. The purpose of this experiment was to see if students at the high school level have better visual or auditory memory capabilities.
In the future...
In the future, I'd like to compare the difference between the visual memory of females and males.
Also, I could have used qualitative data instead of quantitative.
If a student is given a group of words visually, then they will remember it better than if the words are read to them. (Visual learning works better than auditory)
The part of the brain that deals with hearing are the temporal lobes (located above your ears). The part of the brain dealing with vision is in the occipital lobe (the bottom back of your head). The main section that deals with memory is the hippo campus (inner brain). Auditory memory has proven to be systematically inferior to visual memory.

Gather number sequences for people to remember. Each number sequence should be composed of the numbers 0–9 and be seven digits long. You can think them up yourself, or use a random number generator on the internet.
Write one number sequence on each index card, until you have a deck of about 50 different random sequences. You will use this deck for your experiments.
You will also need a data table for your experiment. It should have a place to record the number of correct answers for each participant, and for each type of memory test.
Find a research participant, and ask them if they will take two memory tests. Then give them the two tests below:
To test someone's visual memory, show them a card for 30 seconds and time them with a timer. Take back the card and have them recite the alphabet. Then ask them to tell you what the numbers were. Write down how many numbers they got right. This will be their score.
To test someone's auditory memory, read them the sequence of numbers on a different card three times slowly. After you read them the numbers, have them recite the alphabet. Then ask them to tell you what the numbers were. Write down how many numbers they got right. This will be their score
When you are done, count up the total number of people who got each score on the test and make a frequency table
Calculate the percentage of people who received each score. Do this by first adding the total number of participants for each column, then divide the number of people receiving the score by the total number of participants in your study. Multiply the answer by 100 to get the percentage.
