Guesstimate Distance

As we go about our daily lives, we are constantly making decisions based on guesses and estimates. This exercise will help you improve your ability to make educated guesses about distance.

When you are estimating each answer, try to pay attention to how you are solving the problem. Are you guessing the whole number or are you trying to calculate it based on smaller guesses? Avoid using a calculator or pen and paper until after you have made your estimate.

1. Distance to the moon in miles
2. Length of a AA battery in millimeters
3. Thickness of a standard #2 pencil in inches
4. Height of a stack of a million dollar bills in feet

The answers are listed below in backwards order. Don't cheat!

Mozart Effect

The Mozart Effect is the notion that listening to classical music composed by Mozart can temporarily increase your IQ and enhance other mental functions. It is said that playing classical music to infants can improve their mental development. Some studies have shown that listening to Mozart can temporarily increase one's IQ by up to 9 points when given a spatial reasoning test. Other studies showed that it had the opposite effect!

One theory to explain this is related to mood. If you happen to enjoy classical music, then listening to it will bring you pleasure. This will put you in a good mood, which can improve your mental performance. If you dislike classical music, listening to it will annoy you and cause you to perform poorly on any subsequent test.

This enjoyment effect is not restricted to Mozart; it goes for any type of music. So, listen to what you enjoy and try to get in a good mood whenever you need to perform at the top of your game.
