NRICH Constructions

This list supports teaching of constructing shapes in secondary mathematics. It provides investigations, problems and games from NRICH as well as classroom activities on the STEM Learning website that compliment them.




Here is a favourite activity selected by the NRICH team.

  • Constructing Triangles This problem involves constructing triangles. Students investigate which triples of numbers give lengths from which it is possible to construct a triangle.

These are just a few of the activities on constructing shapes that you can find on the NRICH curriculum pages.




The activities below, taken from the STEM Learning website, complement the NRICH activities above.
