Managing the transition to Intermediate and Secondary
Are your students in Years 6 - 9 struggling with Maths and not making expected progress?
Numicon Big Ideas is a 12-week programme for students who would benefit from revisiting or learning for the first time, key concepts from Levels 1, 2 and 3 of the NZ Curriculum.
Big Ideas was originally written as a catch-up for students in Years 5 onwards, but with the impact of the Covid epidemic this resource has shown to make a significant difference for students in Years 6 - 9.
Using the proven approach, Big Ideas reteaches these concepts, using structured apparatus to teach, reinforce and embed the ideas. It will also break down any misconceptions a student might have. The key mathematical ideas are common areas for everyone learning maths and how to solve problems.
These Big Ideas are: Place value and the number system, addition, subtraction, mulitplication, division, fractions, decimals and percentages.
