- NRich - enriching mathematics
A website from University of Cambridge with levels for all school ages as well as teacher resources. NRich aims to :
- provide free and interesting mathematical games, problems and articles
- encourage you to share your solutions to our mathematical problems
- provide contact with mathematicians who can help you to solve problems
- Plus magazine
Plus is an internet magazine which aims to introduce readers to the beauty and the practical applications of mathematics. A lot of people don't have a very clear idea what "real" maths consists of, and often they don't realise how many things they take for granted only work because of a generous helping of it. Apparently, some people even have the idea that it's boring! Weird.
Plus provides articles and podcasts on any aspect of mathematics, covering topics as diverse as art, medicine, cosmology and sport, a news section, showing how recent news stories were often based on some underlying piece of maths that never made it to the newspapers, reviews of popular maths books, and puzzles for you to sharpen your wits. We have a regular interview with someone in a maths-related career, showing the wide range of uses maths gets put to in the real world.
- Virtual Nerd
Virtual Nerd was originally developed as a supplemental learning resource for teachers and students, with a focus on middle school and high school mathematics. It provides real maths help with over 1,500 video lessons covering secondary school maths.
