It is a difficult time for teachers, parents and students worldwide as we all work together to respond to the challenges we face as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. Whether you are visiting NRICH for the first time or you are one of our regular users, this page outlines how the NRICH team are working to support rich mathematical learning opportunities for everyone during this period of disruption.
NRICH welcomes millions of users every year to share our free, online mathematical activities for learners aged 3-19. We have a huge bank of award-winning resources, ideal for children and students to work on independently while schools are closed, and for teachers to use when teaching remotely. We are working hard to create an initial collection of our best resources for independent learning to share with you, and we will be publishing these resources on our Primary and Secondary student pages on March 31st.
In the meantime, we would like to recommend the following resources as a starting point, for anyone who is looking for activities ideal for learners to work on at home without a teacher:
Our For Two collection is a set of mathematical games adapted for an adult and child to play together. Each activity includes notes for adults with guidance on how to use and adapt the task.
Solving Together is a set of six mathematical games and puzzles designed for lower secondary students to work on with a parent or carer. Each activity includes a video to help you get started, and there is also some general guidance for parents and teachers who want to get the most out of the tasks.
Adventures with Complex Numbers is a collection of activities, articles and videos designed to give a flavour of complex numbers, and would be suitable for any student who is interested in studying mathematics at a higher level.
This page will continue to be updated as we develop more collections tailored to this unique situation. For regular updates about what else we are doing to support you, follow us on Twitter or sign up for our Newsletter.
