Maths in Motion

An engaging, software experience using maths to enter a virtual racing car into races at famous circuits around the world!

Maths in Motion

Maths in Motion allows the discrete teaching of maths in a real-world context to allow students to create a race car with the correct setup for the circuit they are racing at.

Students use their maths skills to make an efficient virtual race car. The race car (and the student's maths skills) are put to the test by competing against other student players from around the world!

The software takes students through all the stages a race engineer would work through and demonstrates the use of maths in motor racing.

The 12-month subscription allows for unlimited races at school and entry into all the races and events hosted by Maths in Motion.

Capacity

Up to 500 participants.

Cost

Starting from £269 for unlimited users.

Duration

Each subscription is 12 months during which time there are numerous races and events with the Maths Challenge running from February to June with a series of knockout heats.
