The child who gravitates towards visual styles of learning agree with the statement, "what they see is what they get". Help them get math, by making it visual.
If you answered yes to a number of these questions, the chances are your child's preferred styles of learning are visual.
Once you go through these questions, you may decide your child does not gravitate towards the visual style.
There are other styles of learning, that you should check out.
Don't forget that this is just a preference your child is showing. Styles of learning change, so don't overload your child with one approach. Variety is still the key. Whenever possible, allow your child to explore math through all the different styles.
Seeing pictures is wonderful, but actually experiencing it will bring math to life. Listening to online videos or DVD's is an excellent resource as they utilize both visual and auditory skills simultaneously.
Why not encourage your child (no matter the age) to start a math club. A social gathering of like minded children can do wonders for any style of learner. This way they can make good use of their math journal and either have a play date or hang out (depending on their age!)
