Short problems for Starters, Homework and Assessment
The links below take you to a selection of short problems based on UKMT junior and intermediate mathematical challenge questions. We have chosen these problems because they are ideal for consolidating and assessing subject knowledge, mathematical thinking and problem-solving skills. You may wish to use these as lesson starters, homework tasks, or as part of internal assessment exercises.
The NRICH Project aims to enrich the mathematical experiences of all learners. To support this aim, members of the
NRICH team work in a wide range of capacities, including providing professional development for teachers wishing to
embed rich mathematical tasks into everyday classroom practice. More information on many of our other activities
can be found here.
