The aim of Numicon is to make numbers real for children through them being able to see and touch them.
Suitable for teachers from Junior Infants to First class and SETs.
Numicon is a multi-sensory maths teaching programme using Numicon maths shapes in a series of practical teaching activities. Numicon’s visual, auditory and kinaesthetic approach appeals to different learning styles. Pupils learn through both seeing and feeling how Numicon patterns connect with each other.
By physically manipulating Numicon to build constructions, make arrangements and patterns and play games using the feely bag, pupils will experience with both their hands and their eyes how numbers fit together. The powerful images can also open doors for children struggling with number, no matter how old they are.
