Numbers In The Fast Lane Graphic1

From pit stops to data plots, let’s discover the mathematics behind winning a Formula 1 Championship.

Join our exciting YouTube livestreamed interactive lesson for school pupils.

Your learners will join our “Fractal Racing” Formula 1 team as trainee data scientists.

Using real-life race statistics, such as lap times, average speeds, and pit stop durations, pupils will have to make critical decisions based on data. Should you recommend a pit stop for a tire change? How does the car's current speed affect the chances of overtaking?

Finally, their skills will be put to the test as they use maths and data literacy skills to drive their team to victory in the Maths Week Scotland Grand Prix.
