Our Maths in Motion club have had yet another impressive result. The club met together on Wednesday afternoon to take part in a special Maths in Motion World Maths Day competition. The children had to set up a car to run the quickest practice lap of a grand prix track. All caution was thrown to the wind as the children calculated safe speeds, then pushed up those numbers to get the car around the track as fast as possible. There were crashes and everyone had to use trial and improvement methods, but by using all the possible bits of information available they completed some very fast laps. I am pleased to say that of the 100,000 practice laps completed for this track on World Maths Day our team was placed 100th.
