Hello Abacus and Helix!

18th Sep 2018
Hello Abacus and Helix!

Mr Potts' class finally got to meet Abacus and Helix.

Abacus and Helix deliver Izak9 tasks from the whiteboard at the front of the class, via the internet.

Izak9 is a unique, radical and innovative maths resource from Qubizm, a company with more than 25 years experience in the teaching and learning of mathematics. It is an immersive, multi-media rich, active learning device designed for use by children in Primary schools.

Children work together in small groups using real cubes to not only solve the number, algebra, data and shape/space problems that Abacus and Helix pose, but also to develop ideas and create tasks and questions of their own.

The class had a great time using the numeracy resource for their weekly problem solving lesson.
