NRICH Packages

Stage: 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

Packages are handy bundles of NRICH resources which you can either preview online or download for later offline work - good for interactive whiteboards or in classrooms with no internet access 

Three reasons why you should use NRICH packages:
  • We've done your searching for you! We have saved you time by collecting together NRICH resources which help to develop a mathematical idea.
  • Packages include extra guidance for using the resources in the classroom.
  • By downloading a package, you will still be able to use any interactivities within a resource, even if you are not online.
To use a package offline, download either the teacher or student zip archive, unzip it, and use your internet browser to open the file called 'index.html' in the unzipped folder. The student zip contains everything that is in the teacher zip except the solutions.

In Windows, select 'Extract all Files' to unzip the archive. You can then view the package by looking at the index file in the extracted folder. Macs will usually unzip the archive into a folder for you.

You'll also be able to load NRICH packages into any Virtual Learning Environment which supports the SCORM1.2 standard.

We would welcome feedback on how helpful you find these packages.
