Cambridge Maths Circle activities

Many of the activities that we use at the Maths Circle can be found online, at NRICH. We hope that you will be inspired to continue working on some of them in between Maths Circle events. 

Here's a list that includes many of the activities from past Maths Circle events. We've grouped them roughly by the level of maths required (as we do at the Maths Circle), but many of them can be tackled at a number of levels and so could appear in several places.
