Up2d8 maths

The fortnightly Up2d8 maths resources explore a range of mathematical themes in a topical context. The resource is not intended to be a set of instructions but rather a framework which you can personalise to fit your classroom and your learners.

A successful Formula One team relies on many factors working in harmony with each other; these include the skill of the driver, the car’s aerodynamics, engine power, tyres and a degree of luck.  Nevertheless, no matter how advanced any of these factors are, in order to win the team must employ the optimum race strategy and outwit their opponents. This Up2d8 resource takes Ross Brawn, race strategist and owner of the Brawn GP team, as its inspiration, with students being asked to use trial and improvement strategies to win the race.

This resource is not year group specific and so will need to be read through and possibly adapted before use. The way in which you choose to use the resource will enable your learners to access some of the Key Processes from the Key Stage 3 Programme of Study.
