Numicon builds a deep understanding of maths through a multi-sensory approach, developing children's fluency, reasoning and problem-solving. This display frieze can be put up in the classroom. It shows 100 blocks of 100 squares, each made up of 100 dots, helping children recognize 1 000 000 as a cube number. The sections can be arranged end-to-end horizontally or as an array - such as in a square of 10 x 10 blocks - helping children to also recognize 1
000 000 as a square number. It provides a visual reference point for the scale of large numbers as well as supporting discussions about the application of square and cube numbers to area and volume.
