Number Agents in a Nutshell

Number Agents is an approach I developed out of the Mantle of the Expert Approach.  In essence Number Agents is an imagined company that work to defeat villains on behalf of clients.  To defeat the villains they must solve math related problems.  Number agents is an approach for juniors (year 1-3) however I believe with a little modification the concept would work brilliantly for senior children.  Number Agents combines drama, play based learning and problem solving to engage, motivate and excite learners.  This imagined world fits with how children love to learn and gives an authenticity and purpose to maths.  It is also a huge amount of fun!
