  • Y9 Mathematical Problem-Solving Day

    Thursday, 13 July 2017 - 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 perseverance, 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 consists of a mixture of highly interactive mathematical activity talks and hands-on problem-solving workshops led by the NRICH team. There will also be opportunities for accompanying staff to talk to the NRICH team and gather ideas for embedding problem-solving in the GCSE Mathematics curriculum.

    Outline timetable:

    09.30 - 10.00: Arrival and registration
    10.00 - 11:00: Talk: Paper Folding With a Purpose
    11.00 - 11:15: Break
    11.15 - 12:00: Problem-solving Workshop 1
    12.00 - 12:45: Lunch (lunch will be provided free of charge)
    12.45 - 13:30: Problem-solving Workshop 2
    13.30 - 13:45: Break
    13.45 - 14:30: Problem-solving Workshop 3
    14:30 - 15:00: Final plenary session
    3.00pm: End and depart

    How to book:

    This event is aimed at students currently coming to the end of Y9, especially those who might perhaps go on to consider studying mathematics at A-level. This event is open to school groups from state schools/academies only, and places must be pre-booked. Thanks to generous Widening Participation funding from the University of Cambridge, the day is free to attend.

    Schools are welcome to bring up to a maximum of 30 students, subject to availability of places, plus accompanying teachers (all groups must be accompanied by at least one supervising teacher for every 15 students). Please read the cancellation policy on the registration page before booking.

    There has been a very high level of interest in this event, and it is now fully booked. Join the waiting list to be notified if any places become available.

  • NRICH NQT Professional Development Day

    Tuesday, 18 July 2017 - 10:00am to 3:45pm

    A free professional development event for newly qualified teachers of mathematics (NQTs) coming to the end of their first year in schools, run by the NRICH team. The event will cover Key Stages 1-4, with tailored workshops for each phase.

    This event will give an opportunity to reflect on your first full year of classroom mathematics teaching and network and share experiences with other colleagues at the same stage in their careers.

    The day will focus on:

    • Supporting the key aims of National Curriculum - problem-solving, reasoning, and fluency
    • Extending your knowledge and understanding of effective pedagogies for delivering rich mathematics in the classroom
    • Exploiting the potential of NRICH's extensive free resources to build learners' capacity to be resilient problem-solvers

    How to book

    Thanks to generous support from Trinity College, University of Cambridge, we can offer free places to teachers at UK state schools. Booking is now open - for full information, and to book places, please see the NQT Day page on the NRICH website.
