in thread When I count, I think of numbers as...

Strangely, I remember that we had similar rods in elementary school, but I think the color scheme was different. I'm sure 1 was white, but one of the shorter ones (2 or maybe 3) was light blue. Also, there were a few longer rods, I think 12 and 20 long ones.

    I just checked the color scheme of the counting rods they're selling in the shops. (Yes, I could have done this any time in the previous eight years. Sorry for being late.)

    • 1: white
    • 2: light pink
    • 3: light blue
    • 4: red
    • 5: yellow
    • 6: purple
    • 7: black
    • 8: dark brown
    • 9: dark blue
    • 10: orange
    • 12: green
    • 16: light brown
      You took 8 years to follow-up on a reply to your own post, that's 11 years old?!? (And, here I thought that was a new post and even made a reply!)

      PS: Doesn't matter. Learned some new things about how people see colours
