Now generally known as SMP, it began as a research project inspired by a 1961 conference chaired by Bryan Thwaites at the University of Southampton, which itself was precipitated by calls to reform mathematics teaching in the wake of the Sputnik launch by the Soviet Union, the same circumstances which prompted the wider New Math movement. It maintains close ties with the Collaborative Group for Research in Mathematics Education at the university.

SMP was revolutionary in its approach as it kindled fascination in students for mathematics, moving many away from an earlier rejection of mathematics brought on by more rigid and traditional approaches. Instead of dwelling on traditional areas such as arithmetic and geometry, SMP dwelt on set theory, graph theory and logic. It taught non-cartesian co-ordinate systems, matrix mathematics, affine transforms, vectors and non-decimal number systems.
