Welcome to these starting points for problem-solving in undergraduate mathematics. They were developed as part of the HE-STEM initiative to enhance the curriculum experience of STEM undergraduates including a greater emphasis on problem-solving in mathematics.
These starting points or “interactivities” have been developed by mathematics educators from Cambridge University, Liverpool Hope University and University of Manchester, in collaboration with NRICH, experts in mathematical problem-solving for learners and their teachers. They are fully functional on a range of technological platforms including tablets and handhelds. This permits highly flexible use by tutors from presentation in a lecture to small group or individual work.
Tutor notes describe the main aims for each interactivity and suggested possible uses.
We do hope you enjoy these interactivities which have been programmed by Jason Davies and released under an open source license in order to be sustainable.
Please feel free to feedback by contacting NRICH or Jason Davies.
