How Can Teachers Use It?

NRICH's School Maths Topics is a dynamic math resource primarily for grades 3 and 4, although many activities are also appropriate for grades 2 and 5. Topics include number patterns, basic operations, measurement, 2-D and 3-D shapes, and data analysis. You can supplement what you're already doing with these activities, or use them to give kids an extra challenge. As a supplement, choose an activity for kids to complete in small groups -- have them discuss their solutions as a class. Relate the activity to what kids are learning in your more formal lessons. If working directly on the computer, make sure kids don't access the solutions until after the class discussion. If you're giving kids an extra challenge, assign them from time to time as homework -- follow up by asking kids to share their results with the class. Many activities include printable worksheets; however, in some cases, additional materials are needed so be sure to plan accordingly.
