The NRICH Team have organised a series of three Teacher Inspiration Days in Cambridge this year. The aim has been to support mathematics teachers who are committed to nurturing confident, resourceful and enthusiastic learners.
We would like to share with you the outcomes of one of the workshops of the second meeting.
Delegates were asked to consider how they might use the interactivity from Semi-Regular Tessellations in different situations in a way that:
Kept the complexity while making sure that the mathematics was accessible
Promoted group work and purposeful talk
Encouraged students to make connections
The posters they produced for each situation can be seen by clicking on the images below.
To introduce a topic:
In a consolidation exercise:
In a lesson to be evaluated by an OfStEd inspector:
In a lesson in a computer room (as part of a series of lessons):
In a lesson with no computer or projector:
In a lesson that emphasises cross-curriculum connections:
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.
