Numicon is an approach utilising these skills:
- Communicating mathematically - collaboration, conversations to solve problems
- Exploring relationships - learning through play
- Generalising - inquiry approach to investigating problems
Numicon follows the principles of learning described by Piaget, Vygotsky and Bruner.
Children learn best with three representations used together to create meaning, language and conceptual understanding.
By using concrete structures more than pictures and abstract representations at each step in their learning journey, children are able to access number knowledge and the relationships of number and all the strands of mathematics easily.
