Recognising the number of objects in a small group, without counting them, enables learners to move on from counting in ones, to combining sets of numbers.
Understanding the part-part-whole concept helps learners to separate and combine numbers and supports the step towards addition and subtraction.
The end goal is to mentally add and subtract two 2-digit numbers by quickly selecting and executing an efficient strategy.
So that children can understand and solve more complex problems, Numbots focuses on the process of learning maths, not just getting the answer right.
Purposeful, distributed practice is key to developing mathematical proficiency. Numbots captures children’s attention, engaging them in regular maths practice.
Numbots gives each child the time they need to fully explore each concept, ensuring they improve and succeed at maths, regardless of their initial attainment.
Building on a secure foundation of core skills, the Campaign Mode integrates familiar concepts and procedures across multiple representations and contexts.
Real-time insights and detailed performance evaluations for each child, class and school analyse their progress in relation to specific learning objectives.
Numbots‘ carefully planned question generator asks practise questions of appropriate difficulty, in a logical order that supports children’s learning.
So that children can solve more complex problems, NumBots’ intelligent practice methodology focuses on automatic recall of number facts as well as developing conceptual understanding.
Spaced practice and interleaved material, combined with supreme gamification, are at the heart of NumBots and underpin best practice in low-stakes quizzing.
Our levels progress from “counting without counting” (subitising) all the way to selecting efficient mental calculation strategies so that learners leave counting on their fingers behind.
To secure understanding, NumBots takes a depth-before-breadth approach by exposing learners to facts and ideas across several representations that flow from pseudo-concrete to pictoral to abstract.
NumBots systematically varies only the elements we want learners to attend to. Our sophisticated conceptual and procedural variation layers up their comprehension at each step.
NumBots’ algorithm is programmed to atomise problem types and follow a natural mathematical progression. Our learners maintain confidence and are primed to learn the next concept.
