NRICH provides free mathematics education resources designed to challenge, inspire and engage ages 3 to 19, including support for teachers and parents.

Our NRICH website reaches millions of students and teachers. NRICH resources focus on problem-solving and embody a ‘low-threshold/high-ceiling’ philosophy: the problems are accessible but encourage rich mathematical thinking, exploration and extension. The activities are designed to encourage discussion and discovery, and to build students’ perseverance, mathematical reasoning, ability to apply knowledge creatively in unfamiliar contexts, and confidence in tackling new challenges.

The resources on the site cover early years (ages 3 to 5), primary (ages 5 to 11) and secondary (ages 11 to 18) education, right through to support for students’ transition from A-level to university. Students are invited to submit solutions to ‘live’ problems on the site, with featured solutions published online.

NRICH for parents and teachers

NRICH resources include extensive teacher support and guidance material, including detailed suggestions for using the rich tasks in the classroom, with downloadable worksheets or activity resources where required; key concepts and questions to explore; advice on supporting students who require more help; suggestions for extension activities for students who are ready for additional challenges and links to related problems to explore. Mapping NRICH resources to the curriculum enables teachers to introduce genuinely engaging, creative, rich activities in the daily reality of the mathematics classroom.

A global reputation

NRICH has gained a global reputation as a leader in the development and delivery of problem-solving mathematics education resources, and the programme has significant impact. In 2016, the site welcomed more than 5.9 million users.
NRICH’s world-leading online materials are free and open to everyone, but these ground-breaking education resources require a huge investment of time and expertise to create. We receive no government funding – our work is supported by donations and grants from organisations and individuals who share our commitment to making a positive difference to mathematics education for students worldwide.
