Great Extension Tasks

Sometimes we find that students who are ahead in mathematics end up becoming bored and disillusioned.  On this page, you will find tasks that extend student thinking without just increasing the content level and are suitable for use by small groups or pairs of students.  These tasks are designed to be engaging – brains on as well as hands on – and can be used more or less independently.  More tasks will be added regularly, so remember to check back each term.
