  1. Count On

    Count On is a major mathematics education project in the United Kingdom which was announced by education secretary David Blunkett at the end of 2000. It was the follow-on to Maths Year 2000 which was the UK's contribution to UNICEF's World Mathematical Year. Count On had two main strands: ⁕The website www.counton.org which won the 2002 BETT prize for best free online learning resource. ⁕"MathFests", which were maths funfairs held around the country, aimed particularly at those who would not normally come into contact with mathematical ideas. The MathFests were run largely by MatheMagic and the University of York. The project has now been handed over to the NCETM.
