Where do I start?

Numicon builds the steady 'journey' for students and development of mathematical understanding, problem-solving, positive attitudes to mathematics and confidence in themselves as mathematicians. They are 'explorers'!

Five!

Your students are five, New Entrants, Firm Foundations, the most important year of a child's formal education. Firm Foundations is a 'learning through play' approach with a balance of child and adult-led activities for a complete year.

Your students are in Year 8 and are not doing as well as expected.  If you are beginning this journey with Numicon, you are free to take your time to begin with Numicon 5 and work at the student's pace through to Numicon 6. If Numicon 5 is beyond them, then begin with Numicon 4 and work at a faster pace to include Numicon 5 during the year.
