Maths Week London Contest from Sumdog
London Underground Activity from the ATM
The map of the London Underground has always been of interest to mathematicians.
The map does not show a scaled down version of the underground rail network but does show how to travel between stations.
Some of the questions are based on the actual railway system, others use the map as a basis for puzzles that develop mathematical thinking.
