Math Games: How to Get the Kids Involved in Super Bowl® Sunday With Math!

A lot of math is involved in sports: scoring, ranking, odds. Super Bowl® is a good time to teach kids a mathematical lesson.

  • Create a kids' board and let them pick their squares.
  • Discuss what the odds are, add up the points together throughout the game.
  • After the game, award the winners!

Let the kids keep track of all of the stats on a dry erase board:

  • Who scored the most touchdowns?
  • Who had the most passing yards?
  • Who had the most rushing yards?

Make math fun by showing them how it applies to real life – they may not even realize they're learning!
