The London Marathon - Maths Challenge
This weekend is the London Marathon, to celebrate this, we are going to link it to our maths challenge this month. Your task is to choose a marathon from around the world and discover some amazing number facts about it. Produce a poster to present your facts. Here are some ideas to get you started: Find out about distance in miles and then convert it into kilometres. Can you work out what that is in metres? What about centimetres? On average, how many steps does it take to complete the marathon? How many runners crossed the finish line? Can you compare that with the year before? Who finished fastest? What was the time? What was the difference between the fastest and slowest time? Who has the world record? What time did they run it in? Can you compare the time difference between the fastest male and the fastest female? Can you find out an unusual maths related fact? Bring your posters in by Monday 31st October (after half term).
