History[edit]

Plus was initially named PASS Maths (Public Awareness and Schools Support for Maths) in 1997, when it was a project of the Interactive Courseware Research and Development Group, based jointly at the University of Cambridge and Keele University. Plus is now part of the Millennium Mathematics Project, a long term national initiative based in Cambridge and active across the UK and internationally.

Authors of articles in Plus include Stephen Hawking[1] and Marcus du Sautoy.[2]

Plus won the 2001 Webby for Best Science Site on the Web,[3] and has been described as "an excellent site put together by those with a real love for the subject".[4] In 2006 the Millennium Mathematics Project, of which Plus is a part, won the Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher Education.[5]
