Visualisation is accepted as an important aspect of mathematical reasoning. Edens and Potter state, "[Visualisations] assist students in learning to 'unpack' the structure of a problem" (2008). Visualisation refers to mental imagery people use make sense of problems. This includes using pictures, diagrams and charts that can help organise thoughts.
This interactive course will explore different ways visualisation-focused activities can support learners understanding and encourage deeper thinking in maths, including algebraic expressions, circle geometry, areas, and problem-solving.
