Cars Maths in Motion is online software which simulates the setting up of Formula 1 style racing car. Your students, working in small teams of 4, must complete a series of mathematical challenges in an effort to produce the perfect car. This 'virtual' car is then entered into competitive races against teams from other local schools followed by entry into the summer national competition.
