Tracking Back Study - Key Questions Arising
Key questions arising
Charts and data
From this study we have identified 6 important questions arising around which subsequent research might usefully be based. These important questions were formed following a careful examination of the qualitative and quantitative data received. These will informally influence the work of NRICH at Key Stage 5 during 2012/13.
Are there meaningful and identifiable profiles of student experience and views of mathematics?
Can NRICH devise suitable pre-university intervention/preparation for these profiles which will give students the best possible start at university given their particular educational circumstances? Are there critical times at which intervention needs to be made?
How successful is NRICH in meeting the needs of these students with both existing resources and the new resources which are planned? Can we determine what constitutes a 'good' NRICH resource for these students?
In what ways do the social aspects of mathematics become important and lead to university success?
What is the correct balance of acceleration vs. enrichment for exceptionally able students?
In each of the above points, which aspects are specific to exceptionally talented mathematics students and which are more generally applicable to wider groups of students?
Meet the team
The NRICH Project aims to enrich the mathematical experiences of all learners. To support this aim, members of the NRICH team work in a wide range of capacities, including providing professional development for teachers wishing to embed rich mathematical tasks into everyday classroom practice.
