Maths in Sport!

MRs Lacey's Maths in Sport!

As part of our maths day rotation, Mrs Lacey got the children to think about all the different maths which applied to sporting activities.
The children were amazed at all the different maths concepts which were covered, here are a few of the ones they discovered :

Netball - Area of a court
Snooker, Javelin, Football, & Gymnastics  - Angles
Boxing - Weight
Swimming - Distance & Time
High Jump - Angle, Height

After discussing maths in sport, the children got to put all they had been learning into practice.

Finally they took part in a Maths Trail to apply all their knowledge.
