Youcubed at Home

In these times of uncertainty, youcubed is here to help students at home continue to explore and learn maths in rich and creative ways. We are collecting here modified versions of our tasks to be more home-friendly, as well as some new explorations designed for learners at home.

Please help us distribute these to anyone who might use them and share your students’ work with our community using the hashtag #YoucubedAtHome in social media.
