Maths & Sport: Countdown to the games

'Maths and Sport: Countdown to the Games' is an exciting new project from the award-winning Millennium Mathematics Project at the University of Cambridge.

To celebrate London 2012 they're developing free online mathematical resources exploring maths and science through the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Resources are divided into two types of content - activities for students aged 5 to 18 (UK Key Stages 1 through to 5 - most including teachers' notes) and articles aimed at older students and the interested general reader.

You can find our articles and activities, arranged by Key Stage, using the tabs at the top of the page, or view content by sport or topic. We'll continue to publish new content throughout the run-up to the 2012 Games.

In addition to our free online resources, we've also developed a Maths of Sport Roadshow which can visit your school for a hands-on maths event.
