  • Maths for Parents

    Date: 
    Thursday, 21 June 2018 - 4:30pm to 6:00pm

    Maths materials - cubes in cups

    Do you read stories to your children? Do you play tennis, or go swimming with your children? Do you cook, sing,
    or garden with your children?

    Have you ever considered doing some maths with your children? Would you like to encourage a child whose interest hasn't yet been engaged by maths? Or are you looking for inspiration on how to support a child who is already keen?

    Come to this free taster session and discover how you can explore maths in far more family- friendly forms than just homework!

    How to book

    This event is organised by our NRICH programme in collaboration with the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education. Places are free but must be pre-booked via the Institute of Continuing Education website.

    Level: 
    General public
    Level additional information: 
    Parents, carers, grandparents etc. of children aged 8-13 (note: this session is designed for adults - you can then share the ideas explored with your children later)
  • Teacher CPD Day - Developing Mathematical Resilience

    Date: 
    Tuesday, 3 July 2018 - 10:00am to 4:00pm

    A free CPD event for teachers of mathematics at Key Stages 2, 3, and 4 who are interested in developing resilient learners in their classrooms.

    Whether your students are breezing through every problem you give them, or struggling at every turn, they may not be developing the resilience they need to become independent problem solvers.

    How would we like our students to respond to being stuck, and how can we best support them in a way that doesn’t make them become dependent on us?

    NRICH tasks have always helped to develop mathematical thinking and promote mathematical exploration. In our latest project, NRICH has created tasks designed to capture students’ interest so that they have a desire to persevere even when the going gets tough. Our supporting materials for teachers suggest ways of scaffolding the activities without spoon-feeding.

    This event will offer opportunities to work on selected NRICH tasks designed to develop resilience, and discuss the implications for classroom practice.

    How to book

    Places are free for Key Stage 2, 3 or 4 teachers in all UK schools but must be pre-booked. Booking is now open.

    Teachers of mathematics at Key Stage 2, 3 and/or 4
  • Y12 Mathematical Problem-Solving Day

    Date: 
    Tuesday, 10 July 2018 - 10:00am to 4:00pm

    Centre for Mathematical Sciences'

    This free full-day event for Year 12 students (ages 16-17) studying A-level mathematics is designed to broaden mathematical horizons, give a stimulating introduction to advanced mathematical problem-solving, and encourage students to consider studying Mathematics at university.

    The event will give an insight into some challenging, exciting and rewarding mathematics, and will support students to develop their mathematical thinking and confidence in tackling challenging problems. The day will be highly interactive: it includes a mix of talks and small-group workshops led by the NRICH team and staff from the University of Cambridge Mathematics Faculty.

  • Y9 Mathematical Problem-Solving Day

    Date: 
    Tuesday, 17 July 2018 - 10:00am to 3:00pm

    NRICH activity Nine Colours
    This free event for Y9 students aims to help students develop their mathematical reasoning, problem solving and resilience, by exploring engaging mathematical activities in new contexts. The day is designed to help students develop their mathematical problem solving skills at the start of their journey exploring the GCSE curriculum, and to encourage the further study of mathematics at A-level and beyond.

    The day will consist of a mixture of highly interactive mathematical activity talks and hands-on problem-solving workshops led by the NRICH team.
