The Numicon multi-sensory approach to maths teaching can transform children's understanding of number and number relationships. Seeing pattern in numbers is a key part of mathematical thinking and the Numicon approach is designed to play to the strong sense of pattern that is present in all children, it helps them to understand complex mathematical ideas by using structural apparatus - the Numicon Shapes and Number Rods - in a progressive programme of largely practical activities. Mathematical language is encouraged throughout the teaching programme with guidance on encouraging mathematical conversations. Thousands of schools have already recognised that the Numicon approach has on
children's mathematical development and more and more teachers are experiencing Numicon's high quality professional development. Children love the Numicon multi-sensory approach; their enthusiasm and increased confidence encourages them to persevere, which in turn leads to a deeper understanding of mathematics and raised achievement.
