I work with big risk boys as advisors for teenagers and assist them with their homework homework assignments can be very stressful sometimes, especially when they are not interested in learning math. I often hear the boys studying math for those stressful because math is boring. When I'm helping the boys with their homework math, it's the first thing I figure out how to keep their attention by finding out what's the one they enjoy the most. I know that if I can get them to identify what they enjoy most, I can get them interested in learning. If I can get them interested in learning, it will not be so stressful to help them with homework in mathematics. For example, I know that the boys really enjoy football so I use football to show them how to understand the fundamentals of mathematics and how to learn maths fun.
Football Games Made Simple
1. It's Offensive and Defense Team
2. The goal of the football game is to score in the final area and the highest score at the end of the game wins
3. The center of the football field is the 50th line. The numbers on the football field increase and decrease in levels 10
How to use soccer to teach mathematics
1. Let students name their team based on their favorite university or NFL team
2. Draw a copy of the football field on the chapel
3. Use colored chalk to write out the "math problems" and show the movement of football on the pitch
Math problem # 1
How to teach deduction: 50-20 =?
"Team A" holds football on the 50-yard line. The Play: Quarterback throws football down the field. The receiver flows down to the stadium and catches football on the 20-yard line. If "Team A" started on the 50-yard line and now holds football on the 20-yard line how many meters did the Receiver on "Team A" work on the play? Answer 30 meters.
Math problem # 2
How to teach an extension 10 + 30 =?
"Team B" is on a 10-yard line. The Play: The Quarterback is going to go football to run back and see how many yards he can achieve on the play. The game is good! The Running back to "Team B" got 30 meters. If the season started on the 10-yard line and the runner-up reached 30 meters, where is the ball at the start of a new game? Answer-40 yard line.
I find that children who are socially challenged learn better when you can keep their attention. If you do football or other sports in the learning process, it helps to teach math less stressful because it makes learning interesting. Football also lets you take the kids into the subject and it will help them remember mathematical terms.
