Hands-on mathematical activities, games, puzzles and problem-solving challenges – something for all ages from 5 to 18! From teddies to teacups, giant dominoes, the Soma Cube, prime hopscotch and Calculus Countdown: this is maths but not as you know it…

Explore some of the maths hidden in the Olympic and Paralympic Games! Challenge yourself to complete the Maths of Sport Pentathlon, a series of hands-on mathematical activities focusing on Olympic and Paralympic sports and infrastructure.

As well as lots of hands-on activities suitable for different ages (5+ and 12+), during the afternoon there will also be opportunities for older children (age 12+ and age 14+) to work as a group on some of our favourite problems, in sessions led by MMP staff. No fixed times and no need to book in advance – just listen out for the sessions being announced during the afternoon!

This talk is part of the Millennium Mathematics Project ( series.
