The wonderful NRICH site from the University of Cambridge which offers outstanding free enrichment resources for teachers and students has a new look. (Old links still work.) I like the design of the new website – a clean and modern feel which seems simple to navigate. Simply choose the stage required from Teachers’ or Students’ menus on the front page.

Choosing Secondary under Teachers for example includes a link (under Collections) to an excellent stage 3 and 4 curriculum page which suggest NRICH activities by curriculum topic. Also, very usefully, activities are listed by mathematical processes such as Thinking Strategically and Working Systematically. Note also the link to the (updated) mapping document which is very valuable when searching for activities.

I went and played with this for a bit after reading Ms. Young’s blog post about its update. It’s really good stuff. There is a lot here that is in my own curriculum and a lot that ought to be or someday will. The most important feature of the U. of Cambridge site is its presentation: it’s easy to find interesting information and the movies and explanations are pleasant, professional, and concise.

Sorry … I meant to reblog this at my new blog, http://poliquinmath.net. I suppose it will show up at the dead site, too … transitions are tricky! MP
