Problem Solving in Mathematics Using IZAK 9

Problem Solving in Mathematics Using IZAK 9

Primary Teachers / Post Primary Junior Cycle Mathematics

Suitable for In-Class/Team Teaching and other STEM projects…

What is IZAK9?

Izak9consists 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 to the development of mathematical skills - problem solving, integration, critical thinking, collaboration etc. 

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. 

The use of IZAK 9 is growing in Ireland. Izak9 is already in use in 40% of schools in Northern Ireland where, in addition to the obvious classroom use to help raise standards in the teaching and learning of mathematics, it is used to support pupil transition and the extended schools programme (reaching into the community by involving parents in their children’s education), Izak9 also features in Robbie Meredith’s report on how well Irish children performed in the international TIMMS tests in mathematics.

Who is it suitable for?   

Izak9 can be used by children of all ages throughout a school to support them in building a more positive relationship with mathematics Izak9 can be used by children of all ages throughout a school. Teachers can be creative and use their own ideas with the mathematical cubes.

However the online tasks are most suitable for senior classes in primary school and Junior cycle students.
