Have you heard of the National Young Mathematicians' Award (NYMA)? If not, you can find out more here.

In this feature, we have gathered together some of the tasks which were created for the NYMA. Bernard, one of the members of the NRICH team, hatches these brain-stretching activities so if you are looking for a serious challenge, you have come to the right place! These tricky tasks were written to be worked on as a team, so gather some of your friends together and have a go! Why
not persuade your teacher to enter a team for this year's event?

If you have been involved in the 2018/19 competition, we'd love to have your feedback. Thank you for taking the time to complete this very short online questionnaire.
