The Maths 100 Foundation is a non-profit organisation which encourages students to tackle additional mathematics beyond homework and school requirements. All profits are ploughed back into secondary maths teachers' in-service training. The project has been extended to primary schools with Maths 100 Odyssey, comprising audio tapes and colourful books of mythological stories which lead six to nine-year-olds into mathematics. At lively Saturday workshops they explore new maths concepts.
