Numicon

Numicon is a multi-sensory approach to maths, built on a proven pedagogy that raises achievement across all mathematics ability levels. With research-based resources and rigorous teaching support from nursery to Year 6, Numicon provides children with the skills they need to become confident mathematicians.
 
Numicon exemplifies the principles of maths mastery with concrete apparatus and imagery to embed a deep understanding. It also embodies the aims of the 2014 National Curriculum by developing conversation, reasoning and problem-solving and therefore ensures every child meets end-of-year expectations with robust and reliable assessment tracking.
 
At Fairway, we use Numicon to enable children to visualise the maths work they are completing. Using Numicon means children can explain quite difficult maths concepts in a visual way and enables them to persevere with a problem for longer as it is being approached in more structured way. Through the use of Numicon we hope our children will gain a deeper understanding of the maths they are covering and this will therefore raise both their confidence and attainment.
