## Introduction to Visual Numbers

At Visnos we belief that mathematical concepts are much easier to understand when shown visually. Our activities provide interactive animated graphics to explain various concepts. For example the multiplication tables can be represented by tropical fish. The fish swim in and out of the tables to show different products. If a child can form a clear mental picture of what a calculation means. They are much more likely to both remember and the understand the process. The more abstract mathematical language be shown alongside the visual explanation.

## Interactive teaching resources

Our ITRs can be used effectively for whole class teaching on an interactive white board. For smaller groups a PC or laptop is equally effective. Currently there are activities for addition and subtraction facts, angles, measurement using a protractor, telling the time, multiplication and division. Types of numbers such as factors, multiples, square and triangular. New resources are being added on a regular basis.

## More to come

Hopefully reading this text has given you an idea of what we are trying to achieve at Visnos. But the best way is to actually go to the mathematical demonstrations and try out the activities.
