The Millennium Mathematics Project (MMP) is a maths education and outreach initiative for ages 3 to 19 and the general public. The MMP is a collaboration between the Faculties of Mathematics and Education at the University of Cambridge, and is active nationally and internationally. Our focus is on increasing mathematical understanding, confidence and enjoyment, enriching everyone's experience of mathematics, and promoting creative and imaginative approaches to maths.
In the 2011/12 school year our web-based mathematical resources attracted more than 5.6 million visits from users worldwide and more than 23.4 million page views, while over 32,000 pupils and more than 5,500 teachers were involved in our face-to-face activities and events.
The MMP’s various programmes have won many awards and our resources have been repeatedly commended by the UK Government’s Department for Education. In 2006 the Queen presented the project with the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education, honouring ‘outstanding achievement and excellence’ at world-class level.
