9 May 2019
The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) has introduced a new and specially formulated mathematics textbook which aims to help students enjoy the study of mathematics through interaction with Japanese athletes and sporting bodies. The book also gives students the opportunity to actively participate in educational initiatives linked to the Games. On 17 April, Tokyo 2020 hosted a special class using the new textbook in a public elementary school in Tokyo, with the participation of two medallists, Olympian Kaori Matsumoto and Paralympian Takuro Yamada.
