Numicon is a multi-sensory mathematics teaching programme using visual Numicon images in a series of practical teaching activities.

When Numicon patterns are arranged in order, pupils begin to notice important connections between numbers for instance that each number is one more than the last and one fewer than the next, odd and even numbers and place value.


  • Exemplifies the principles of maths mastery with concrete apparatus and imagery to embed deep understanding
  • Embodies the aims of the 2014 National Curriculum by developing conversation, reasoning and problem-solving
  • Supported by NCETM-accredited professional development for sustained school improvement

Some classes use Numicon to support their mathematical development.
