This page provides a link to the current sets of problems.
Single copies of each set of problems can be obtained from the links below. The problems will appear at the appropriate time.
|Problems||2018-2019||due by||2018-2019||due by|
|Secondary||Senior 1||28 September||Senior 2||22 February|
|Middle 1||Middle 2|
|Junior 1||Junior 2|
|Primary||Set 1||28 September||Set 2||23 November||Set 3||8 February|
Please note that it is standard practice to leave some previous items on the website as, particularly for the solutions, they may be used as ‘style guides’.
Books of problems
The problems of earlier sessions form an excellent resource. The books below, published by The Scottish Mathematical Council, include the problems and solutions for the years indicated. (Each of the first three books contains material from three academic years.)
|Years covered||Price (includes p&p)|
|Mathematical Challenges II||1991-1994||Sold out|
|Mathematical Challenges III||1994- 1997||£7.50|
|Mathematical Challenges IV||1997-2000||£8.00|
|Mathematical Challenges V||2000-2003||£8.00|

Cheques with order are preferred.
Cheques should be made payable to 'SMC Mathematical Challenge'.
In addition, it seems unlikely that any further books will be printed so questions and solutions for 2006-2011 can be accessed at the Mathematical Challenges Archive.
Comments on the usefulness of these to firstname.lastname@example.org would be welcome.
