Home schooling history of mathematics resources

Home schooling history of mathematics resources

Snezana Lawrence

Next week some more children in England will go back to school, but most of the children will still be learning from home. We have put a short list together for the parents and children alike to do some mathematics during this period, and remind you that the 1st of July is the deadline to submit an essay or presentation in the history of mathematics for our Schools Prize! https://www.bshm.ac.uk/plus

1. https://www.rigb.org/education/masterclasses/masterclass-resources

The first on our list is the Royal Institution Primary off-the-shelf Masterclasses. These resources are complete, so you can just go through them to complete the masterclass. There is everything in each pack, from the power point presentation to the worksheets. Each should take about 2.5 hours, but may take more or less depending on the way you organise your work. 

2.  https://plus.maths.org/content/

Then there is the Plus+ Magazine, our partner in the Schools Prize Competition https://www.bshm.ac.uk/plus . On their website you will find puzzles, articles, and ‘packages’ which can be used for home schooling.

3. https://nrich.maths.org/secondary 

Finally, we recommend the Nrich website. This website has a huge number of resources developed over a long period of time. You will find there things suitable for all ages and difficulty levels - the link above is set for secondary age pupils but there is more on this website for younger kids too. 

Enjoy and don't forget to support your child to do something for our competition! https://www.bshm.ac.uk/plus
