Maths in Motion

Some of the children in Year 6 have been attending “Maths in Motion Club”.  The software recreates the thrills and spills of high speed motor racing.  The children worked in pairs to design and set up their own racing car, using a mixture of basic maths skills and personal decision making.

The rules are easy… get your maths right, make the correct decisions and you will stand a chance of winning a race……… get your maths wrong and you run the risk of crashing your car, blowing up the engine or not even make it to the starting line! What could be simpler?

The club ran for 14 weeks, and each week there was a race.  Points were given according to where you finished, and added up each week to form a championship.  Here you can see the participants, with their trophies and certificates.  Well done to all involved!
