Nurturing Successful Mathematicians

Nurturing Successful Mathematicians

In this feature, we showcase several sets of linked activities which can be used to help develop students' mathematical proficiency. We encourage you to share with your students our model of What Makes a Good Mathematician, and help them to self-assess their levels of mathematical proficiency as they work through the sets of linked tasks.

Please encourage your students to send in their solutions by Monday 6 July.
