Background. Nippy Numbers was developed to provide user-friendly and readily accessible materials for use in Key Stages 1, 2 and 3 and beyond, based on Professor Sharma's approach to teaching mathematics.
Nippy Numbers incorporates the key psychological learning theory principles underpinning the synthetic phonics approach to literacy teaching.
The resulting materials can be used both for first-time teaching and also for subsequent interventions.
