Further Risps by Jonny Griffiths
My Risps site at www.risps.co.uk offers 40 investigative activities for A Level Pure Mathematics.
('Risp' stands for 'rich starting point').
It struck me a while back that similarly open material might be welcome for the Pure Further Mathematics A Level classroom.
So here is a collection of 40 tasks, Further Risps, first published in January 2019.
I spoke about this project in workshops at the BCME Conference 2018 and at the MEI Conference 2018.
