Learning Maths with Numicon

I’m always learning the handiest tips from my son’s teacher. Last week when I met with her, she told me about Numicon and how it’s her favourite tool for teaching maths to kids. So I rushed home from the school and ordered a set from Amazon . Numicon is a simple but effective set of plastic numicon shapes, each representing a different number (colour coded for easy recognition). You can practice addition, subtraction, multiplication and division all with the help of these simple shapes. It offers a visual resource for children to easily practice their maths without really knowing that they’re learning or practicing. (Meant for children from aged 4 upwards!)
