Numicon Presentation 1 – Monday, 4th October 2021

Exploring Numicon in the Classroom

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.

Presentation 1:

Specific Learning Objectives

Having participated in this presentation teachers will:

Acquire a comprehensive working knowledge of how the unique materials that comprise Numicon can be used to explore and develop a broad range of key mathematical concepts with their pupils;

Revise, refresh and utilise the key pedagogical approaches to the teaching of mathematics;

Better devise, resource and deliver mathematics lessons that are hands-on and full of potential & possibility for discussion and conversation.

Presentation Outline/Overview

1. Matching Shapes

2. Ordering Shapes

3. Counting to 5

4. Understanding One More

5. Odd & Even, Sorting
