The ‘Maths and Sport’ website was originally developed to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It is part of the award-winning Millennium Mathematics Project at the University of Cambridge.

These free online mathematical resources explore maths and science through sport, and particularly through the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Resources include activities designed to develop problem-solving and mathematical reasoning skills for students aged 5 to 18 (UK Key Stages 1 to 5) and articles aimed at older students and the interested general reader. In addition this site includes a number of video maths challenges, produced with input from us by BBC Two Learning Zone.

The MMP have also developed a small collection of activities on Maths and Football in collaboration with Arsenal in the Community.

You can find all these articles and activities, arranged by Key Stage, using the tabs at the top of the page or view content by sport or topic.
