Fantasy Football


In the midst of another NFL season, we introduce students to Fantasy Football. Students first calculate football points given touchdowns, yardage gains and interceptions. They are then challenged to generalize an equation that gives a player's total fantasy points. Students solve equations as they try to find the number of passes, touchdowns, or interceptions that yield given point totals.  Students can also compete in their own fantasy football competition within the class.  

This lesson is ideal for teachers that want to work on equations with their students or for a group of football fans.  You can also read one math teacher's experience with this lesson at her blog: MightyMiddleSchoolMathIf your class is unfamiliar with fantasy football you might consider showing this video that goes through the basics.
