Numicon?

  1. oops
    Try again
    Hi a couple of people have mentioned using numicon to teach maths in Foundation is this making a comeback or has it never gone away? Anyone used it? do you rate it?
     
  2. We use it across foundation and KS1 - fantastic and well worth investing.
     
  3. We have always had it but I have never really seen the value of it until we had an excellent training session on it by a new teacher to the school. She explained how numicon gives the children a physical relevance to a usually hard to understand concept of a numeral. Since then I have been using it regularly with my F1 children and it is seeming so far to make mathematical ideas seem relevent and concrete to them. So I am a numicon convert [​IMG]
     
  4. Sounds good might look into getting some
