Learning with Numicon

Numicon is a multi-sensory approach to teaching maths developed by experts in the classroom. It is designed to help children understand connections between abstract number and calculations. The Numicon teaching materials are designed to give structured, concrete imagery to represent numbers and number relations. It is a multi-sensory approach teaching children to learn mathematical ideas and language through seeing, feeling and hearing.
