    Hi!
    As the Super Bowl nears, I'm trying to think of some fun activities to practice math skills. Maybe somehow including a team's roster, stats., etc.?

    Has anyone tried anything like this that has worked and they'd recommend?

    I welcome any ideas you might have to share. :)

    Thanks!

    I did something like this with baseball one year. It was really motivating for the students.

    We used stats and had to order the team (which meant ordering decimals). I made sure to leave off any place holder zeros so that the students couldn't just look at the three numbers each time.

    We also calculated player values by adding various stats together.
