Synopsis

Numicon: Breaking Barriers Teaching Pack by Tony Wing, Romey Tacon, Ruth Atkinson, Louise Pennington

Numicon is a proven approach for teaching and learning maths that builds deep understanding and engagement. Through active investigation with problem-solving at its heart and supported by structured apparatus, children reason and communicate mathematically with confidence. Breaking Barriers is specifically designed for teaching children who experience particular difficulties learning maths, including those with special educational needs and disabilities. The Numicon Breaking Barriers Teaching Pack comprises a Teaching Handbook and an Assessment and Photocopy Masters book. The Teaching Handbook provides a coherent teaching progression with support for planning and assessment, a Teaching Guide containing expert advice on making number ideas accessible and addressing childrens underlying difficulties, easy-to-follow activities with guidance on the smaller steps some children may need to take, suggestions for extension, helpful illustrations that demonstrate how apparatus can be used to support childrens reasoning, ideas for putting the activities into context, and links to the Numicon Number, Pattern and Calculating and Geometry, Measurement and Statistics materials. The Assessment and Photocopy Masters book contains Assessment Signposts for ensuring that teaching starts at an appropriate point, an Individual Record of Progress providing detailed tracking for each child, a Child Profile for building a picture of strengths and difficulties so that specific needs can be addressed, and Photocopy masters to support the activities in the Teaching Handbook.

Reviews

Numicon has become part of what I do when teaching maths. It has become an integral part of maths lessons because it works! However did we teach maths before Numicon? Maths Coordinator, Chandlings Manor School, Oxfordshire
