Introducing Creativity in the Classroom

Have you seen our Wild Maths site, designed to promote mathematical creativity?

The tasks have been written with the expectation that students might work on the problems on their own outside the classroom. However, there are lots of great ideas that you might want to use in lessons too!

Below you can find collections of NRICH tasks which complement the pathways of connected resources on Wild Maths. These NRICH tasks are accompanied by supporting Teachers' Resources, and are ideal for promoting creativity in the classroom.
