Numicon Big Ideas is a programme of additional sessions for small groups, focusing on key elements of the Primary maths curriculum for pupils not meeting age-related expectations in Upper Primary level or early Secondary (aged 10 upwards), laying the foundation for success at Secondary level as well as in end-of-Primary assessments.
Numicon is research-based and proven to have a significant and lasting impact on results.
Numicon Big Ideas includes an initial assessment and 48 step-by-step sessions across 5 key areas: Place Value, Adding and Subtracting, Multiplying and Dividing, Fractions, and Working with Fractions, Decimals and Percentages.
The sessions are suitable for delivery by non-specialists and focus on strong re-teaching of key topics using an active, practical approach to support reasoning and mathematical conversation.
The Teaching Guide introduces the Numicon approach, provides a full explanation of how to implement the programme, and offers expert advice on how to make the sessions most effective.
Photocopy Masters to support the activities are included.
(The sessions are supported by the separate Numicon Big Ideas Apparatus Pack.)
