Numericon

Description

Numericon is an innovative 26-episode science fiction adventure series for middle-school students who are struggling with math skills and concepts. The focus is on four areas that have traditionally been problematic for this age group: Ratio & Proportion; Linear Equations; Data, Statistics, & Probability; and Geometry.

Included is a comprehensive instructional teacher guide with additional teaching and learning activities to further mathematical understanding, and a glossary to help teachers with definitions.

Numericon motivates students to learn and apply math concepts while answering the age-old question, “How does this math apply to real life?” While each episode offers a satisfying beginning and conclusion that can be used as a stand-alone teaching tool, the complete narrative includes character development that underscores values such as teamwork, loyalty, trust, and responsibility to oneself and others.
