FUN FRIDAY: N-riching math resources

Do you know about the wealth of resources over at The NRICH Project? Teachers across grade levels and subject areas will want to check out the many activities, printables, and lesson ideas designed to “enrich the mathematical experiences of all learners”.

Students who struggle in math may be interested in the many games featured on the site. Most of the games would work well as part of a classroom lesson and could be easily adapted for learners with different abilities. For example, in the game Tug of War, some students might simply be focused on counting up the numbers on the dice and moving their pieces the appropriate number of spaces while others may be able to learn the strategy of the game. Some of your students may even be able to design new versions of the game.

And since it is the holiday season, parents may want to check out the math-puzzle-a-day advent calendar!
