Latest research into learning maths, by Professor Jo Boaler, emphasises the importance of students not learning maths through memorization.  In her books Mindset Mathematics the research shows that students will do better in maths if they are given the opportunity to visualize, play and investigate the maths concepts they are learning.

She talks about how colour-coding can help students visualise number patterns which helps them to connect everything together and build a deep understanding of mathematical concepts.

Our brain wants to think visually about mathematics, yet few curriculum materials engage students in visual thinking. The neuroscientists’ research shows the importance not only of visual thinking but also of students’ connecting different areas of their brains as they work on mathematics.Jo Boaler
