IZAK9 Cubes (3.3.2020)

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 development of mathematical skills as outlined in the Primary School Mathematics curriculum - communicating and expressing, integrating and connecting, reasoning, etc. The tasks also span several strands of the curriculum, including NumberAlgebra and Shape and Space.

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.

This course will run over three sessions on Tuesday 3rd, 10th and 24th March and will cover:

Session 1: Introduction to Izak9

Session 2: Further Izak9 activities, with a focus on linking these to the strands and skills of the Primary School Curriculum. 

Session 3: Planning for the Use of Izak9 in the Classroom

While this course will be aimed primarily at 4th, 5th and 6th Classes in Primary School, Izak9 tasks are also suitable for First Year students in Post Primary school.

Sets of Izak9 cubes will be made available on loan from Portlaoise Education Centre for participants of this course.
