Maths legend Colin Wright posed this question on Twitter:
Q for my maths tweeps – recommendations wanted for Maths Journals suitable for a bright and engaged Sixth Form student. Suggestions?

It led to a flurry of interesting replies, and here’s some of them.
Run by a group of students based at UCL, Chalkdust comes out four times a year and has editorials, fun features, interesting articles, cartoons and a prize crossword. It’s also available in a print version if you ask nicely and pay for postage.
Based at the University of Cambridge’s Millennium Maths Project, Plus has been a free online maths magazine for a good while – almost 20 years, with articles dating back as far as 1997. Plus has articles on diverse related topics, news, reviews, interviews and puzzles.
The Mathematical Association of America has two regular journals, both requiring MAA membership to read online, but there are discounted student membership rates.
The Mathematical Association is a UK maths teachers’ organisation, and its magazine SYMmetry Plus, part of its Society of Young Mathematicians, is aimed at 10-18 year olds, with issues coming out three times a year. SYM members get a free copy, and it’s also available by subscription, costing around £20 for three issues.
Run by publishers Springer, the Mathematical Intelligencer is a proper journal, and while some articles require a subscription they have a subset of them available as open access.
The Royal Statistical Society runs this monthly stats-focused mag with a subscription or RSS membership, and online articles appearing a year after publication.
