Red Square  Poly Plug on NRICH, UK
NRICH is one of the world's top mathematics education sites. NRICH leaders Lynne McClure and Liz Woodham were introduced to Poly Plug at a conference workshop. As a result they developed and trialed the Poly Plug activities in the next column. Each activity includes teachers' notes, a Flash interactive that can be run on your electronic whiteboard directly from the site and various print materials.
