PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Football Fanatics… Masters of Mathematics!

Fantasy Football within the classroom, or as an after-school club, is authentic, hands-on computing and mathematical problem-solving that is engaging, student-centered, and an awful lot of fun. It is an iconic, pop-cultural hobby that would be an innovative way to address a number of Common Core math standards while practicing mental math.

Football Fanatics is a week-to-week pursuit for students in grades 4-8 during an entire NFL season. Boys and girls of all levels and abilities will get something from it; from the most statistically savvy students to ones who struggle with mental math, they all come alive when crunching the numbers in a close weekly match-up. It can be hard to find ways for students to be self-motivated in math activities; fantasy football does just that.

Much of the guide can be open to interpretation based on many things:
- your interest/comfort level with football
- your interest/comfort level with fantasy football
- the time you have each week to devote to this endeavor
- administrative support
- interest level from the students

Mold to your needs as you are able. I can say that if you are not super interested or comfortable with football, but still want to do this for your students, chances are you have a student or two in your class who can help you implement this. Whatever you do, just be specific and consistent with the rules and regulations throughout the season and for all players. Fair is fair, and while this is a lot of fun, it can get competitive…
