Live Problems - Stage 3, 4 & 5

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

These tasks will stop being live after Monday 12 October.
