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.
