    The Liverpool Hope University-NRICH collaboration aimed to• develop an innovative and sustainable online bank of starting points for problem-solving, presented in an interactive, visual and engaging way that will nurture mathematical thinking, logical processes and modelling. The starting points will permit a range of teaching approaches – individual, small group and whole class. They will be fully functional on a range of digital technologies including handhelds.• contribute to the guide for incorporating problems into courses, developing problem-solving skills and assessment and providing case studies of effective integration of problem-solving into undergraduate mathematics courses.Four starting points for problem solving have been designed, developed and tested and will be available on the NRICH website from September 2012.
