A website that gives users a taste of how mathematics is relevant in sport, whether that is to improve our understanding of a particular scenario, improve equipment design, or to optimisize a strategy like the one that faces a team in a F1 race. This learning resource includes a review of numeric and geometric sequences and series, and uses these in the context of choosing a pitting strategy in a F1 race. The resource includes an interactive game where up to three learners can compete against each other by comparing different strategies, and check their solutions to the exercises. The website was created by Dr Tudur Davies and Mr Jakub Sowa from Aberystwyth University. The project was supported by a small grant from the London Mathematical Society.
