Everyone’s favourite source of excellent maths activities for all ages, NRICH, has been inspired by our change of font and has redesigned their site. It is still full of excellent ideas and teaching resources, as well as puzzles and games. Fans of rounded rectangles will especially like the slick new design and easy-to-use sections for different age groups.
What do you think of the redesign? Do you already use the NRICH site? Will you from now on? Comments below.
James Grime, of the Enigma project and guest editor of the February 2012 code month at Nrich, has posted a code breaking challenge on his YouTube channel singingbanana. The prize is a signed copy of Simon Singh’s The Code Book. You can get the ciphertext to decrypt along with a couple of clues presented with James’ trademark charm in the video singingbanana code challenge 2012. The winner and solution will be announced in March.
