  • Numicon is a proven maths approach for ALL students. The visual & kinaesthetic approach is very appealing to all students including intermediate and secondary. It is a practical base to develop conceptual understanding - learning through play. Problem-solving using real-life contexts that give every activity a purpose. This course is an introduction to Numicon for new teachers, or for teachers wanting a refresher to the Numicon approach. We will explore activities from Numicon 1 - 6. We will look closely at the printed resources as well as the apparatus demonstrating the value of a hands-on approach that uses conversation, problem-solving in a sequential, consistent approach across the strands and school. We will cover planning and assessment. This fee includes morning tea and a takeaway Maths resource that you can use in your classroom. Please bring your own lunch.
