This webinar explores the idea of a sense of number in humans. Numbersense is our ability to understand numbers and their relationships with other numbers.

Our sense of number provides the foundations on which we build arithmetic knowledge and an impairment in numbersense is one of the primary causal factors in dyscalculia.

Drawing on neuroscience, cognitive psychology and classroom observation we explore how numbers work and how we understand them.
