Young Mathematicians' Award 2012
For the third year running, NRICH worked with Explore Learning to create the Young Mathematicians' Award (YMA) 2012.
Teams of four primary children from schools across the UK competed at regional events before five were selected to come to NRICH HQ in Cambridge for the final. The five finalists were:
St Mark’s CE Junior School, Salisbury
Larmenier and Sacred Heart, Hammersmith
George Heriots, Edinburgh
Knaphill School, Woking
Lincroft Middle School, Oakley , Bedford
And the winners were ... Knaphill! Congratulations to them!
The tasks used in the preliminary rounds were
Make Those Bracelets
. We hope that you will enjoy having a go at them, even if you didn't take part in the YMA.
As soon as we can, we will publish the problem which was used in the final too.
If you are interested in participating in future years, you may find it helpful to have a go at the activities listed

The NRICH Project aims to enrich the mathematical experiences of all learners. To support this aim, members of the NRICH team work in a wide range of capacities, including providing professional development for teachers wishing to embed rich mathematical tasks into everyday classroom practice.
