A numbers game created by a Father to help his daughter with her maths!
Making her competent at maths was the aim. The method was using a format that was familiar to millions of parents and children worldwide.
Playing on a board in a crossword fashion, using wooden tiles with numbers and operators to make calculations. The answer to your calculation was your score. The player with the highest score at the end of the game is the winner.
Recognise the format? Pure and simple, why reinvent the wheel!
The board game version is for ages 9 and upwards, and for younger children there is:
Numenko-in-a-bag, where players play without a board, all at the same time but independently of each other. The winner is the player with the least number of tiles in their hand at the end of the game.
You can help your child improve their numeracy skills with Numenko. You can help them build their confidence with numbers and calculations through fun and play with learning.
Numenko is used in schools as the children feel unthreatened by its simple rules. Youngsters of varying skill levels can play on an equal footing.
Remove the fear of Maths and replace it with an enjoyment of numbers
