## *To access our latest resources supporting preparation for university-level mathematics, please visit the STEP Support Programme*

This is the NRICH collection of materials to help you to prepare for university and to help you to appreciate how exciting and interesting advanced mathematics and its applications can be. You might have already chosen a course or might be thinking about which university subject would best suit your interests. You might even have been to university and want to see how mathematics works in a
discipline other than your own!

In this collection there are small selections of problems to do and articles to read. We suggest that you take your time over these to allow yourself to really get involved with the concepts, some of which might seem rather unusual. We have chosen the material to cover both core mathematical topics and mathematical styles of thinking that are useful at university.

If you are planning to apply to a university that uses STEP as part of its conditional offers, you may find our free online STEP Support Programme helpful.
