In Little Dippers, we use a range of manipulatives to support our learning in maths. Our favourite resource to use is Numicon.
Numicon is a range of multi-sensory maths resources using imagery, models and signs to raise mathematical achievement. These resources help children to develop fluency by using a visual, practical base to develop conceptual understanding and fluent recall. Furthermore, it helps children to reason mathematically through the use of concrete objects and spoken language to explain and justify.It will also help children to develop into confident problem-solvers since it provides them with visual a stimulus to support their reasoning communication. Finally, Numicon can help us make confident and competent Mathematicians, as well as making learning fun and interactive.
