The NRICH Project started in 1996. Originally it was an online maths club for interested (and highly able) students, mainly of secondary age. You can read the original mission statement and aims below. Since then the project has changed and is now a project which caters for all abilities and ages, and provides considerable support to teachers.
NRICH is based in both the University of Cambridge's Faculty of Education and the Centre for Mathematical Sciences.
The NRICH Project encompasses:
The site is frequently updated with new content. The problems are carefully chosen and prepared by the editorial team and supporting articles, games and other resources are produced to support and complement each other. All the material published in the past is archived and accessible using the search facilities on the site.
The community section of the site (AskNRICH) contains discussion boards where pupils, teachers and interested adults can ask mathematical questions and discuss mathematical issues that are of interest to them.
The STIMULUS project places undergraduate and graduate University of Cambridge students into local schools to support the teaching of maths and maths related subjects, and also coordinates the Mathematicians in Residence project.
