Primary Live Problems

Each time you visit the NRICH site there will be some activities which are 'live'. That means we are inviting you to send us your solutions and we will publish a selection of them, along with your name and school. If you'd like to read more about what we're looking for, read this short article.

This set of tasks will stop being live on Friday 12 October.
