Anyone should be able to make a start on any of these resources. They are our favourites because they really get you thinking mathematically.

This is our collection of favourite mathematics and sport materials.

This feature outlines aspects to consider to create a space in which problem solving can flourish.

The focus of this feature is to show that every lesson can be a problem solving lesson.

These tasks focus on developing key problem-solving skills: visualising, working backwards, reasoning logically, conjecturing, working systematically, looking for patterns, and trial and improvement.

The features on this page are linked to the three aims of the National Curriculum - number fluency, reasoning and problem solving.

This feature will help you embed the three aims of the curriculum into the teaching and learning of geometry.

These tasks lend themselves to exploring the role teachers play in encouraging a problem-solving approach.

These tasks are a good starting point for encouraging positive 'Habits of Mind' - collaboration, determination, thoughtfulness and curiosity.

This feature supports primary teachers in developing learners' problem-solving and group-working skills using tasks created for the Young Mathematicians' Award.

Ways in which NRICH can help you to meet the aims of the new National Curriculum in England.

These activities can help pupils to develop the skill of working independently from the teacher, often by working with other children.

This feature details how NRICH can help you embed a problem-solving approach in your classroom.

This group of tasks will help you support the geometry curriculum using a problem-solving approach.

These articles, written for primary teachers, focus on the overarching curriculum aims of problem solving, reasoning and fluency.

In this feature we offer rich tasks to build learners' deep conceptual understanding of fractions.

These upper primary tasks all involve geometry - describing, constructing, reflecting, rotating or translating shapes along with angles.

This feature focuses on generalising and proving.

This collection of activities for KS2 children focuses on ratio and proportion.

These upper primary tasks could all be tackled using a trial and improvement approach.

This feature includes tasks which have multiple routes to the solution. We hope this will make you curious about finding different approaches!

These tasks offer geometrical contexts in which to explore the three aims of the primary National Curriculum for mathematics.

Statistics problems for primary learners to work on with others.

The tasks in this feature have been designed to encourage learners to be curious about different routes to a solution.

This collection of tasks encourages children to build group-working skills.

The tasks in this feature have been designed to encourage learners to be curious about different routes to a solution.

Statistics problems for you to work on with others.

The tasks in this group reflect a progression of ideas associated with fractions but crucially also offer opportunities for learners to develop their problem-solving and reasoning skills.

These resources introduce and explore the concepts of volume and capacity.

The features listed here come with ideas for embedding the activities into your classroom practice.

These tasks give learners chance to generalise, which involves identifying an underlying structure.

Geometry problems for you to work on with others.

These activities encourage children to work systematically in a variety of contexts.

These articles focus on pedagogical aspects of primary classroom practice, including links to relevant research.
