Updated!

When soccer great, Lionel Messi played for Barcelona, he had one of the highest paid contracts of any athlete in the world.  He had a $674 million dollar 4-year contract. Canelo Álvarez is an incredible Mexican boxer with a 5-year contract for $365 million dollars. Take a look at some of the other big world sports' contracts from the NBA, NHL, NFL, MLB and European Football (soccer).  We often hear about big player contracts. Who makes the most per year? Per game? What sports? In this activity, with a twist on unit rate, students find the average pay per year or "unit rate of pay" for a collection of highly paid athletes. Students think about unit rate; proportionality; slope; the relationship between multiplication and division; and the contrast between the pay of various sports.
