The Visually Compelling Math Class

When teaching math at the secondary level, visual teaching is a must! It is key to your students' understanding of the material, particularly for understanding more advanced topics. Your students will retain and recall more if you teach them using visual components. Here are ways to better incorporate visual learning into your math classroom.

The Visually Compelling Math Class
  • AD McDaniel says:
    Could visual learning be so effective for math instruction that words become entirely unnecessary? The Mind Institute provides an interesting perspective on something seems almost impossible: teaching without words. This video shows how their “teaching math without words” method works.
  • AD McDaniel says:
    Want a visual, fun way to help students keep their remedial skills fresh? These visually-compelling, interactive lessons help students review their lower-level math skills until they become ingrained in their minds.

    AD McDaniel says:
    For students who have an interest in advanced math but can not quite grasp it when taught abstractly, these visual calculus lessons serve as a perfect introduction into to each new unit or lesson. These modules take some of the most abstract math topics including pre-calculus, sequences, series and more and create visual explanations that will help your students actually see what you mean.

    Seeing As Understanding: The Importance of Visual Mathematics for our Brain and Learning

    15 minute read
    AD McDaniel says:
    To provide you with some background on the importance of visual learning in your math classes, this research lays out the connections in our brains between the visual and the mathematic. As a teacher, it is definitely worth a read in order to get a full grasp on why it is so necessary to provide visual learning so your students can retain information.
