3,2,1 Go! is a sports and maths challenge show which reveals how important maths is to sport.

Two rowing-mad Key Stage 3 schoolchildren are taken to Bisham Abbey.

They meet Olympic rower Anna Watkins, and are set an exciting maths challenge related to rowing.

The stroke rate is the number of times a rower pulls their oar in a minute.

The challenge is to measure how the team’s stroke rate changes over the training session, find the average, and decide whether the team improved over the session or not.
