10 Things to do with Numicon
Based on a concrete-pictorial-abstract approach, Numicon encourages children to explore mathematics using structured imagery and apparatus in order to understand and explain mathematical concepts.
Numicon is a flexible tool which can be used in different ways as you progress from year 1 to year 6. In KS1 it is often used as a calculating tool but can be used to develop problem solving as you progress into KS2.
These 10 Numicon activities can be used with children in KS1 and KS2. Many of the activities are for two or more children and encourage children to problem solve and generalise.
