Ask NRICH - the Ask-a-Mathematician service

If you have a question about a particular mathematical problem, or about mathematics in general, Ask NRICH is the place to be.

Our team will do their best to help you. They are not here to give you answers to questions, but they will help you to make sense of the mathematics involved and to use what you know to think your way through the problems yourself.

They are very quick and friendly! Most questions get a useful reply within the day.

There are four main places to go:

Anyone can read the posts on Ask NRICH but if you want to ask a question you have to register.

NRICH is our parent site, which has loads of mathematics resources for all ages.
