Who are we?
Numbermix is an award-winning social enterprise founded in 2010 to create and initiate innovative numeracy projects. We design, develop, market and deliver products ranging from active and engaging maths classes in schools to numeracy themed activity boxes. The overarching aspiration of the company is to raise attainment in mathematics and to increase the number of opportunities children have to learn maths in as many areas of their lives as possible. The first hop, step or jump in becoming numberfit starts with enjoyment.
What do we do?
The Numbermix tools provide active and healthy head-starts in education, using a unique and fun blend of differentiated multi-sensory lessons, innovative activity boxes, challenging soft play games and captivating novels to teach numeracy and problem solving. With years of experience, the Numberfit programme has been tried, tested and piloted by the London Borough of Hammersmith/Fulham's Local Education Authorities. The results have been remarkable and the Numberfit programme has proven that hands-on activities that engage various parts of the brain maximise the chances of learning.
