Making mathematics real

October 27, 2008 at 7:24 pm Leave a comment

I’ve just been introduced to Numicon by the class teacher I’m placed with for my infant placement. This looks like a flexible and useful resource, so I look forward to trying it out on placement.

A search on the National Centre for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics (NCETM) website for Numicon led me to a video and article on using stories to engage children in mathematical questions. The video shows the teacher reading a story, then using the device of a letter sent by a character in the story to set up the problem solving activity. I love this idea but I’m going to need to hone my ability to spot mathematical concepts wherever they crop up.
