Visual Learning Animations (VLAs) & Topic Opener Videos
Between 78 and 89 enVisionMATHS Visual Learning Animations (VLAs) are found on each Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) DVD for Foundation to Year 4. These captivating animations are designed to explicitly teach the underlying maths concepts in each lesson of enVisionMATHS. The enVisionMATHS program for Years 5 and 6 varies slightly, having Topic Opener Videos, rather than VLAs. Topic Opener Videos introduce a whole topic, rather than individual lessons to better suit learning styles for this age group. Topic Opener Videos all start with a brief introduction, followed by an opening animation and 3-4 minutes of topic exploration. "It's a fantastic resource. The animations and support material are very clear, precise and stimulating." - Kym Lilley, Suncoast Christian College Examples of VLAs and a Topic Opener Video can be found below. Please note that you would control the speed of the VLAs and Topic Opener Videos by using the back and forward arrows on the bottom right hand side of the screen, however for the purposes of these recordings, we have controlled these buttons for you.

Q: How is enVisionMATHS different to other maths teaching systems? A: enVisionMATHS is the only maths teaching program that combines modular print-based teaching resources with breakthrough digital teaching and learning tools. The combination of print and digital teaching tools makes enVisionMATHS unique - and exponentially more effective. The use of visual learning bridges and animations is also unique and provides for deep conceptual understanding of Maths in accordance with the aims of the Australian Curriculum.
Q: Couldn't I just google the online maths teaching resources? A: Googling this broad topic returns almost 2,000,000 responses. By the time you've sorted these into the categories and formats you want, you could have prepared a lesson. enVisionMATHS resources are professionally researched, created and collated to be 100% relevant to Australian students and teachers and the Australian Curriculum.
Q: Why not just teach the way I've always taught? A: All the research into primary learning points to significant changes taking place. Parents want more accountability and consistency, while students want interactive, engaging learning experiences. In response, enVisionMATHS delivers a direct, instructional and measurable approach to learning Maths basics, gift wrapped within a framework of interactivity, involvement and cross-media platforms.
Q: I have a multi-age classroom. How does enVisionMATHS address this? A: Through provision of particular resources at each level (for example skills trace, differentiated worksheets, games at two levels, maths computation questions with increasing complexity) enVisionMATHS provides resources that allow you to plan a pathway for different ages and levels. The Overview and Implementation Guide at each level provides advice on implementation of the program in multi-age classes.
