FSC2030 Exploring the use of Numicon in the Classroom

69.00

Gain an insight on how the unique materials that comprise Numicon, can be used to explore and develop a broad range of key mathematical concepts with their children. Teachers will revise, refresh and utilise the key pedagogical approaches to the teaching of mathematics.

Category:

The aim of Numicon is to make numbers real for children through them being able to see and touch them. 

Numicon is a multi-sensory maths teaching programme using Numicon maths shapes in a series of practical teaching activities. Numicon’s visual, auditory and kinaesthetic approach appeals to different learning styles. Pupils learn through both seeing and feeling how Numicon patterns connect with each other. By physically manipulating Numicon to build constructions, make arrangements and patterns and play games using the feely bag, pupils will experience with both their hands and their eyes how numbers fit together. The powerful images can also open doors for children struggling with number, no matter how old they are.

 

COURSE DETAILS 

  • Target Audience: This course is ideal for those who may have heard of Numicon but have not yet had the opportunity to explore its uses and benefits in the classroom.  For those with some experience of Numicon in the classroom, this course has a variety of practical activities and video demonstrations of mathematical concepts to advance your knowledge and skillset in the use of Numicon
  • Equipment Required: All our courses are accessible through PC, Laptop, iPad, Tablet and Mobile devices. Internet access required with broadband speeds recommended. Ideally, participants would at least have access to a set of Numicon 1 – 10 shapes.  Other equipment such as baseboards, pegs and numerals would be advantageous as these will help in following the practical activities and video demonstrations
  • Prerequisites or Requirements: This course is suitable for all Primary School Teachers as well as Montessori Teachers and Special Education Teachers
  • Duration: All Flúirse Online Teacher Summer Courses are available from July 1st – August 21st.  Each course requires approximately 20 hours of training and engagement
  • Course Fee: €69 (also available as part of a 2 course 4-EPV Day bundle for €89 or 3 Course 5-EPV Day bundle for €99)
