I have made no secret of my unwavering devotion to Nrich. This University of Cambridge-based website is a treasure trove of rich tasks. The best part about this website is the ability to engage students with abstract algebra concepts. Very infrequently does Nrich apply their problems to any real-world concept. They let the arithmetic itself set the hook. And the algebra solidifies the concept.
As a bonus, now that school is underway, they have many “live” problems which are open for class submission. I’m hoping that my class might want to submit solutions for the Puzzling Place Value problem.
There are a lot of great problems here that I’ve used in my classes. The only problem with available new problems is now I want to devote all my time to solving and implementing them!
