Welcome to The Challenge

The Jaguar Maths in Motion Challenge is now in its 14th season and, if the emails and teacher evaluations we receive are anything to go by, it is getting more popular than ever before! It has engaged and motivated more than 1,000,000 young people over the last decade. Our aims are simple; to help raise standards of achievement in mathematics across an age range of 8 to 16, to help motivate students generally, to show students of all abilities that maths can be fun and that there is a reason for doing it! We are also committed to helping them consider taking up careers in engineering wherever possible! Using tried and tested ‘Cloud’ based software that simulates the setting up of a racing car, students, working in small teams, complete a series of STEM relevant tasks in an effort to produce the perfect car.  This ‘virtual’ car is then entered into a competitive race in the hope of winning it.  The Challenge also involves students racing against teams from other schools and countries.The competitiveness of the Challenge will keep your students focussed for months! Just look at what is covered…

- Percentages
- Multiplication, Division
- Calculator work (or not!)
- Decimals, rounding, context
- Ratios, chance, risk, strategy
- Angles, measurement, scale
- Speed, distance, time
- Maths modelling… what happens if?
- Engine performance, aerodynamics, gears, suspension
- Team strategy, working together
- Interpreting graphs, statistics
- Data handling
- Personal Learning and Thinking Skills
- Functional Maths Skills
- And can you imagine what you could achieve in your STEM Club as well?

The Challenge is now recognised as something that not only motivates both the students and teachers who take part, it also brings a freshness to the teaching and learning of mathematics across the board. Indeed, from teacher feedback, it has become clear that the Challenge, and what it is achieving, is stretching way beyond the maths classroom and into all walks of school life! Why not contact us today and let your students join in the fun?

 

The Challenge is recognised by the STEM Directories as being a scheme to enhance and enrich the learning of students and are also linked to the curriculum of all years and age groups. Click here for more information.

 

Students taking part in the Challenge are eligible to register for a Bronze CREST Award as we are a ‘Linked Scheme’.

As an approved Linked Scheme, we are delighted to confirm that time spent working on the Challenge completing a CREST Bronze Award can now count towards the ‘Skills’ section for a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award too! This section of the DofE aims to inspire young people to develop practical skills, and personal interests – just like the Challenge!

You can find out more about this at by clicking here or by contacting your local CREST co-ordinator.
