Are you ready for some football?? It's that time of the year, football season! Many of our students are spending parts of the weekend or Monday nights watching football with their friends and families. Why not have them make the connection between math and football while they are at it?
What’s in the Activity Pack?
- 3 worksheets: the first two sheets you don’t need any knowledge of the game of football to complete.The third sheet is for students who have a background knowledge of how the game works.
- There are two football field diagrams to assist students in answering questions
A set of task cards (12) covering a variety of math skills linked to current NFL stats, players and teams
- Project – note: students will need to go on to nfl.com and research a team or player for the project. Also, there is no answer key for the project as students will be choosing various players and teams. There are 3 options for page 2 of the project depending on the player that a student chooses (offensive, defensive or quarterback).
For fast finishers or an extra extension, have students choose 3 players and complete each sheet!
