22KEC210 Exploring Numicon in the Classroom via Zoom

Wed 2nd, 9th & 16th February 2022 from 7pm-8pm

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.

Presentation 1:

Specific Learning Objectives

Having participated in this presentation teachers will:

·         Acquire a comprehensive working knowledge of how the unique materials that comprise Numicon can be used to explore and develop a broad range of key mathematical concepts with their pupils;

·         Revise, refresh and utilise the key pedagogical approaches to the teaching of mathematics;

·         Better devise, resource and deliver mathematics lessons that are hands-on and full of potential & possibility for discussion and conversation.

Presentation Outline/Overview

Matching Shapes, Ordering Shapes, Counting to 5, Understanding One More, Odd & Even, Sorting, Investigate Ordering & Make Generalisations, Basic Adding & Subtracting, Using Numicon Pegs, Number Bonds to 10, Number Square Patterns.

Presentation 2:

Specific Learning Objectives

Having participated in this presentation teachers will:

·         Itemise the assessment techniques and opportunities inherent in a Numicon approach;

·         Participate in corresponding activities that can be used to explore and develop each key idea with pupils;

·         Build on key mathematical ideas and techniques in relation to: structures, methods and properties of operations;

·         Understand the importance of visualisation, in terms of how visualisation will support pupil’s learning now and in the future, and the need to share this importance.

Presentation Outline/Overview

Subitising, Arrays, Percentages, Quick-Fire games, Data Handling, Money, Grids & Grid References, Addition, Subtraction.

Presentation 3:

Specific Learning Objectives

Having participated in this presentation teachers will:

·         Determine the practices of an effective teacher of mathematics:

·         Identify and select Numicon units of work to teach selected strand units in mathematics;

·         Outline and use activities that support the Numicon approach to teaching mathematics.

Presentation Outline/Overview

100 Baseboard, Geometry, Layouts, The Clock, Fractions, Factors, Division, Multiplication, Place Value.


The link below will take you to Oxford University Press website where Numicon resources such as a set of Numicon shapes 1-10 can be purchased.


Participants can have them to hand and follow along if they wish but having a set is not a necessity. 

Facilitator Edmond Scannell is a teacher at a special school in Limerick and has been teaching for 24 years.  He has presented to a number of ETBs, schools and colleges on Literacy and Mathematics.
