Numicon builds a deep understanding of maths through a multi-sensory approach, developing children's fluency, reasoning and problem-solving. The Numicon Number, Pattern and Calculating 6 Explorer Progress Books support the activities in the Numicon Number, Pattern and Calculating 6 Teaching Resource Handbook and are a great assessment tool, allowing teachers to gather evidence of children's achievements. The books contain fun and engaging activities for children to complete. Each activity links to a topic from the Teaching Resource Handbook, offering you opportunities to assess individual children's understanding and monitor progress. Children have the freedom to record their answers in their own way, allowing you to see their thinking. The use of real-life contexts allows you to assess children's ability to apply their mathematics learning when faced with 'non-routine' problems.

- Numicon Number Pattern and Calculating 6 Explorer Progress Book A
- Numicon Number Pattern and Calculating 6 Explorer Progress Book B

Along with experienced and practising teachers in schools, Tony is continuing to develop Numicon resources, focusing on concrete objects, conversation and active learning.
Jayne Campling graduated from Brighton University (UK) in 1995 with first class honours. Her dissertation initiated a keen interest in children's visual concepts of maths, which led to involvement with the original Numicon research project (1996-1999). Maintaining links with Numicon, she became a Lead Maths Teacher. Further promotions to Maths Subject Leader and Assistant Headteacher enabled her to implement a multi-sensory approach to maths teaching across a large primary school. A secondment to teach maths education at Brighton University and continued Numicon consultancy work inspired Jayne's involvement in the future development of the Numicon Project, as Resource Development Leader.
Numicon has become part of what I do when teaching maths. It has become an integral part of maths lessons because it works! However did we teach maths before Numicon? * Maths Coordinator, Chandlings Manor School, Oxfordshire *
