The Templeton funding opens up opportunities for us to reconsider aspects of our core work in a different light. Over the past few years the team has worked to ensure that the public perception of NRICH has gradually changed: originally NRICH was a site for interested and able young people to explore mathematics other than that they met at school. Over the recent years NRICH has moved to being
a site mainly for teachers but also for young people, and now catering for students in the whole range of ability. The Templeton Projects have a distinct focus on students of exceptional ability, which means that we now want to maintain our inclusive nature whilst also catering in various ways for those of exceptional mathematical ability, and their teachers and parents. We are doing this, in
addition to our core work, through:
The whole suite of activities is intended to offer opportunities both for students working independently and for teachers. The teachers' notes and support accompanying all resources help teachers to access suitable activities to offer their most able students in the classroom. Although the Templeton Projects are focused on students above 11 years of age, we have decided to implement the
project ideas throughout the whole of the site, including the primary phase.
