    I'm just thinking about setting up my classroom, and what kind of displays to put up. The vast majority of my timetable is 6th form, so I'm looking for stuff that's of a higher level than the numerline/shapes stuff I used to have on my wall when I taught mostly lower school. Any ideas? So far I've got the Konigsberg bridge problem but am rather stuck..

    I usually ask the students to write the revision points from the of the chapter we're working on on brightly coloured paper and stick them up. They're then constantly visible as a resource. I cover random ones up and ask them to write it down from memory as a lesson starter - it means the display changes a lot, but its useful and interactive. Hope this helps

    Anything here Dbizzle? Perhaps Plus, Mathematical Snacks or Mathematical Moments or the Maths Careers site?
    I think MathsCL's idea is a good one - help them remember key facts.

    I'd concentrate on two areas.

    1. The arty stuff, such as fractals, interesting surfaces or curves, and of course Escher.

    2. "Proofs without words" are also very nice.
