What is a good learning environment to promote mathematical learning?

Different children learn in different ways. Part of the responsibility of teachers is to ensure children experience all subjects in a range of ways to suit different types of learners; oral, visual, kinesthetic.

Try this maths test (a VAK test, based on three of Gardner's Intelligences) to find out about what kind of learner you are, then ask two other people to try it…they don’t need to be teachers!

An awareness of different learning styles will help you to think about the range of teaching styles children may need to experience in order to help them learn better. Very few adults or children feel that they only learn in one particular way, although most of us can articulate how we feel we learn best.

Think about each learning style. For each, make some notes about the implications of each style for classroom organisation and resources; this table may help you.

Record your thoughts in your Personal Learning Space.

You can find out more about learning styles in Thinking about Intelligence.
