NRich Live Webinar

Join Liz and Charlie from NRICH  for a chance to work collaboratively on some of their favourite problems. We hope that after the event, students will continue to think about the tasks and devise some elegant solutions.

This webinar will offer a great opportunity for students to work together. We will alternate between thinking time and discussion time, bringing everyone together at various stages during the session.

We suggest teachers set up a computer and a projector to display the live feed to the whole class, who can work on the problems in small groups while the class teacher submits students’ work via the Zoom Chat facility. Students will need pen and paper, or whiteboards. If schools have access to a class set of tablets and wifi, then they may wish to have them available too, but they are certainly not essential.

Date: Tuesday 28th June, 9:45 – 10:30 am

Suitable for: KS2-3
