  • Brighter Thinking: eNRICHing Mathematics Education at KS4

    Monday, 22 June 2015 - 9:30am to Friday, 10 July 2015 - 4:00pm

    We are delighted to be working in collaboration with Cambridge University Press to offer CPD training designed to support teachers with the transition to the new GCSE Mathematics specifications for first teaching from 2015.

    Available nationwide during the 2015 summer term and delivered over a pair of linked days by NRICH, these CPD training days will address the content of the new GCSE curriculum and focus on key areas including problem-solving, reasoning and fluency. Led by the NRICH secondary team, the events will share how to embed rich mathematical tasks into everyday classroom practice.

    Sessions are delivered over a pair of linked days with participants required to attend both days. Dates and locations below:

    Leeds: 22nd June and 6th July 2015

    Birmingham: 24th June and 8th July 2015

    Cambridge: 25th June and 9th July 2015

    Further details and how to book: Booking for all events is being administered by CUP. For full information, please see the Cambridge University Press website.

    Level additional information: 
    For teachers of GCSE Mathematics. Please note: these free CPD days are only open to schools which commit to a full school adoption of the Cambridge University Press new GCSE Mathematics Resources.
  • NQT Inspiration Day 2015: Nurturing Creative Problem Solvers

    Wednesday, 1 July 2015 - 9:30am to 3:30pm

    Join the NRICH team in Cambridge for a free professional development day designed to support NQTs (newly qualified teachers) in nurturing confident, resourceful and creative mathematical problem-solvers in their classrooms.

    As a result of attending this full-day CPD event participants will have a better understanding of how to use rich tasks to support the aims of the new National Curriculum: fluency, reasoning and problem solving.

    The day is a mix of plenary speaker sessions and workshops. It will be highly interactive and will respond to the issues and concerns identified by delegates.

    The event will:

    • explore what is meant by rich tasks that support creative problem solving
    • understand how to embed them in the mathematics lesson
    • become familiar with the extensive resources being made available by the NRICH team
    • discuss and debate effective practice with other teachers

    For further information and the outline programme please see our NRICH website.

    Cost: FREE. Thanks to the generous support of the Templeton World Charity Foundation, we are able to offer free places to teachers from UK schools. Lunch, tea and coffee will be provided without charge for all delegates.

    How to book: Online booking is now open. Schools may send a maximum of two delegates. Places are limited: early booking is advised. Permission to attend must be obtained from your Head/SMT before booking a place.
