Maths at our house: watching sport together

Distances, times, scores… sport is filled with numbers! Whether you are watching sport on TV, reading the sports pages in the newspaper, or checking scores on the internet there are lots of opportunities to explore the results and statistics together with your child. Research shows that when children are working in maths contexts that interest them, they do better. Sport is a way to put some maths thinking and practice into a time you spend together.
