The NRICH Team have organised a series of three
Teacher Inspiration Days
in Cambridge this year. The aim has been to support mathematics teachers who are committed to nurturing confident, resourceful and enthusiastic learners.
At the final workshop delegates met to consider how different schools were setting about the task of ensuring that problem solving was an integral part of their curriculum.
Susanne Mallett and Mark Dawes from Comberton Village College shared their experiences, based on the work they had done with the NRICH team on the QCA
Engaging Mathematics for all Learners
They set the scene with a short
Their workshop offered delegates an opportunity to work on three NRICH problems:
NRICH problems contain Teachers' Notes which address the following headings:
Why do this problem?
Teachers at Comberton Village College have been using
to help them to consider how to make the most of NRICH problems.
Finally they shared these
of promoting the use of NRICH resources in their department.

Catherine Carre and Fran Watson from Sharnbrook Upper School also shared their experience of using a couple of NRICH problems with all their Year 10 students:
This was a starting point for the maths department to consider how to integrate NRICH resources more widely into their curriculum. A short film clip showing Catherine and Fran at work with their students is available
