Maths in Sport - Soccer Booklets
These three Eigen publications booklets provide a range of data handling activities based on football. The booklets largely focus on calculation of means and the use of tallies, frequency tables and bar graphs. However, they also encourage students to look at rather larger amounts of data than they would meet in many texts and to comment on, and make sense of, what they observe.
• Soccer goals provides activities are based on calculation of averages, tally charts and bar charts.
• Soccer pitches includes investigations such as “are more goals scored on small pitches or large pitches?”
• Soccer attendances includes routine calculations and encourages observations from the results.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
