This is a follow on training to the Introduction training which took place in December. Teachers who attend this course will get first preference on hiring Numicon kits for their school from the Education Centre.
Mathematics needs to be active and social. Numicon is both. The Numicon approach is multi-sensory, uses objects and has a focus on action, imagery and conversation, in other words a focus on children physically doing maths.
By using Numicon shapes and materials, children understand number relationships, spot patterns and make generalisations. Numicon’s visual, auditory and kinesthetic (practical) approach appeals to different learning styles.
Numicon enables children to really ‘see’ how numbers and the number system work. The Numicon teaching approach helps children communicate their mathematical thinking to teachers. This in turn helps teachers to ‘see’ pupils' understanding. The concept of 'doing' maths is the key to the Numicon programme.
This ‘Intermediate’ presentation will focus on Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division.
