Another compilation this week, this time of updates to this and some companion blogs.

A consistently popular page on this site has been Rich Tasks – this has now been split into two separate pages, one for **age 11-16** and the other for **age 16+**. The 16+ page has been updated with considerably more detail. With the **UK new A Level specifications** having a greater emphasis on problem solving and more challenging questions, activities such as those here should be a natural part of our regular teaching.

Do explore the brilliant Underground Mathematics site as well as Jonny Griffiths’ various sites. Further resources are provided in the presentation at the **end of the page**.

**Transition Time on Mathematics for Students**. This is a collection of resources and activities aimed at students changing stages in their studies – perhaps starting more advanced studies at school or heading off to university.

**Jonny Griffiths’ Carom Maths**, a collection of forty mathematics activities bridging the gap between A Level and University. Check the

**List of Activities**, for Inequalities for example, illustrated here, choose Carom 1-2: Inequalities. This will lead you to a complete PowerPoint with information and questions on Inequalities.

In last week’s **Mathematical Miscellany #5** I included Jonathan Hall’s MathsBot.com site with its many excellent **Tools for Maths Teachers**. With some great starters and a bank of GCSE questions with solutions more detail has been added to **this post on Mathematics – Starters and Plenaries**. The **Collections page** on the same site has also been updated and checked. As the name implies these are sites with a fantastic supply of starters.
