Exploring Numicon in the Classroom for Primary Teachers 2.11.2021

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.

This three-week webinar on 2nd, 9th & 16th November for Primary teachers will cover the following:

Presentation 1:                

Matching Shapes, Ordering Shapes, Counting to 5, Understanding One More, Odd & Even, Sorting, Investigate Ordering & Make Generalisations, Basic Adding & Subtracting, Using Numicon Pegs, Number Bonds to 10, Number Square Patterns.

Presentation 2:

Subitising, Arrays, Percentages, Quick-Fire games, Data Handling, Money, Grids & Grid References, Addition, Subtraction.

Presentation 3:
