Today some of us got to use our new Maths resource; Numicon. The key to using Numicon is visualisation and it supports LOADS of mathematical and numeracy concepts. Numicon is made up of ‘shapes’ which make numbers. Odd and even numbers look different and they are all in different colours.
One group were learning about the four operations and another group were using it to learn about square numbers, prime numbers and multiples. A big thank you to Mrs MacMillan for coming in and helping us today as our ‘parent helper’.
