IZAK9 Cubes Presentation 28.5.19 2pm
What is IZAK9?
Izak9 consists of 27 brightly coloured cubes, with each face being populated with different combinations of colour, number and shape. These cubes come accompanied with a suite of online tasks. The tasks are aimed specifically at the "Maths skills development" section of the curriculum - problem solving, integration, critical thinking ,collaboration etc. Children work in teams using the physical cubes to solve the tasks from the whiteboard at the front of the room. The learning is fun, engaging and rewarding with all children getting the opportunity to participate actively in every task. in addition to the obvious classroom use to help raise standards in the teaching and learning of mathematics, it is used to support pupil transition and the extended schools programme (reaching into the community by involving parents in their children’s education).
Who is it suitable for?
Although designed for children between the ages of 8 and 12 to support them in building a more positive relationship with mathematics, Izak9 can be used by children of all ages throughout a school, however the tacks are most suitable to 4th, 5th , 6th and First year students in Post Primary.
