Hands-On Maths Roadshow
We visit primary and secondary schools throughout the UK and overseas with a Hands On Maths Roadshow, adaptable for all ages from KS1 to KS4 and sixth formers, presenting creative methods of exploring mathematics through concrete problem solving and strategic reasoning.
The ideas explored in these events can be followed up in more depth afterwards through the materials published on the NRICH website. We also run a version of the Roadshow as the Hands-On Maths Fair each year during the Cambridge Science Festival, and occasionally at other public events.
To book the Roadshow or find out more please see the Hands-On Maths Roadshow page.
The enormously popular Enigma Schools Project was originally set up by Simon Singh. We will visit your school with a genuine WW2 Enigma machine and deliver code breaking workshops designed to engage students of all ages with mathematics by exploring cryptography through the ages. The workshops include both a talk on the history of codes and cryptanalysis, and hands-on codebreaking activities.
For further information and to make a booking please go to the Enigma website.
What are the Odds? - the Hands-On Probability Show
The Hands-On Probability Show was developed in collaboration with Professor David Spiegelhalter, Winton Professor of the Public Understanding of Risk in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, University of Cambridge. The Probability Show enables Key Stage 2 - 5 students to participate in an interactive presentation and game-show style workshops, discovering how mathematics will help them make sense of the real world in situations involving risk, probability, chance and uncertainty.
To book the Hands-On Probability Show or find out more see the Probability Show page.
NRICH - pupil workshops and teacher professional development
The NRICH team also run professional development courses for teachers and pupil workshops and masterclasses in schools all over the UK. We also organise annual professional development courses and one-off events for teachers from all over the UK which are held in Cambridge, including the STEM Teacher Inspiration programme.
