Numicon - Encourage Mathmatical Thinking

What is Numicon?
 
Numicon is a multi-sensory mathematics teaching programme using visual Numicon images in a series of practical teaching activities currently comprising three stages – Foundation, Stage 1 and Stage 2. When Numicon patterns are arranged in order, pupils begin to notice important connections between numbers for instance that each number is one more than the last and one fewer than the next, odd and even numbers and place value. Numicon illustrates number bonds, addition and subtraction, place value, doubling and halving, estimation, division and multiplication.
