The Autumn webinar ‘Exploring Numicon in the Classroom’ will have brand new content of Strand areas from the Mathematics curriculum. There will also be many new activities and ideas for using Numicon in the classroom from Senior Infants to 6th Class.
The aim of Numicon is to make numbers real for children through them being able to see and touch them. It fits in with the Maths Mastery approach that's used in many schools, providing a concrete object to represent each number. It also has a multi-sensory approach that's known to help learning.
Teaching and learning with Numicon requires children to be active - to actively learn and to do the mathematics for themselves. Doing mathematics (i.e. thinking and communicating mathematically) with Numicon, explicitly involves illustrating in every activity through exploring relationships.
