Various researchers have highlighted the importance of the introduction of visual learning in mathematics. Visual representation in mathematics is important for teachers and for pupils in their teaching and learning of mathematics, respectively. Various visual learning platforms are used in mathematics. This research concentrates on 2-D and 3-D visual learning technologies such as MIT App Inventor and Kudo Game Lab for elementary school.
