Children learn in different ways and Mathletics has something for everyone.

It’s no secret that students learn best in a multi-sensory learning space that engages them on visual, auditory and kinesthetic levels (VAK). As classroom teachers we all know this, and do our best to ensure our teaching materials hit all three every time – with visuals to help support what is being said, as well as opportunities to ‘do’, for those who are stronger kinesthetic learners.

Magic of MathleticsThere are of course the additional challenges of students with learning difficulties, or those who are just distracted that day (for whatever reason) and don’t hear or see all of what is being delivered, because they haven’t tuned in.

The theory of VAK – or multisensory learning – reminds us that all students are different and have different ways of taking in and processing new ideas, but we also know that the best materials will fail if they’re presented to someone at the wrong time, regardless of how well they’ve been designed.

When using Mathletics for help with mathematics, students can tailor their learning individually and do it in their own time at their own pace. The feedback they get, whether they have completed a level or earned points, tells them immediately what they have or haven’t understood. If they were distracted during their lesson, there’s time to re-engage with the content using all three VAK learning styles. And hopefully this time they are motivated and ready to learn.

If you need more practice you can repeat a key learning area until you get all the answers correct. Additional information is presented again in new way with clever animations and maths games supporting the learning with visual, as well as auditory information, and the opportunity to practice maths problems to reinforce learning.
