Teaching School and Other School-based Courses
Teaching school course
The Wroxham School, Potters Bar
The Making Maths Meaningful Project ran during the academic year 2012-13. It was an opportunity for teachers to consider how Carol Dweck’s ‘growth mindset’ can affect what goes on in the maths classroom.
Each morning session began with some maths input from the NRICH team, which was then used as the basis for a discussion about classroom practice and an opportunity to plan a small intervention back at school. By meeting each half term we built on our previous work together.

NRICH hopes to run a course for NQTs in the spring/summer terms of 2014 at The Wroxham School. This is likely to comprise two linked half-day sessions. As soon as details are confirmed, they will be posted here.
Leading Learning in Mathematics: high achievement for all
Eleanor Palmer School, Camden
How to develop rich mathematics classrooms where all are engaged, motivated, confident and achieving. Within such classrooms children achieve the basic mathematical skills they need, along with problem-solving strategies and Habits of Mind such as risk-taking and persevering.
This six-session interactive course is a mix of input and discussion combined with planning, teaching and reflecting on joint lessons. Between each central session participants will have a link task to try out back at school.

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.
