Cricket Match

Cricket is a game based on numbers and maths, offering questions about how fast a ball travels, how high, what the score is, and why cricket pitches are often oval.

These ten short sequences, shot during a Saturday cricket match, each display a different aspect of mathematics for pupils to explore, investigate and discuss.

Each sequence poses a question intended to stimulate mathematical discussion rather than to elicit a correct answer to a computation.

The programme can be shown to pupils on a whiteboard where the pictures can be annotated, or worked on by pupils individually, or in groups on PCs or laptops.
