1) Find: Start with the basics. You'll hear and see a photo of a category (let's say "Fruit"). Tap the item that matches (for example, a banana).
2) Classify: Switch it up. Now you start with an item and choose the category that matches. This tests your ability to apply categories to what you see.
3) Exclude: Challenge yourself. By choosing an item that doesn't belong, you learn how to independently identify categories. As things get harder, you can always tap Hint for some help.
4) Add One: Train yourself to recognise common features of items – to categorise them – and then choose one item that fits the category you’ve identified.
