'IZAK 9 is a unique radical and innovative maths resource. Children love to learn through play and using the IZAK 9 concept, it challenges, encourages, stretches and nourishes confidence and competence'
'Abacus' and 'Helix' are two droids that deliver IZAK 9 from the interactive whiteboard. Children work together in small group,s using real cubes to solve number, algebra, data and shape /space problems posed, which develop ideas and create tasks and questions of their own.
