Fun Activities With Numicon

Fun Activities With Numicon
The aim of Numicon is to make numbers real for children through them being able to see and touch them. Numicon Shapes provide a concrete object to represent each number and also has a multi-sensory approach that's known to help learning.
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.
