1. Essential Question can mathematics be integrated into Physical Education

2. Unit Questions • How can mathematics be integrated into physical Education • What equipment do you use • How do you incorporate mathematics in to the exercise • aspect of physical education • How do you incorporate mathematics into the sports aspect of physical education • How do you make it fun

3. How can Mathematics be Integrated into Physical Education • Incorporate mathematics into exercises • Incorporate mathematics into games • Allow the students to divide into groups or group members themselves based on teacher’s instructions

4. Integrating Mathematics and Physical Education By SchlanderVerner

5. What equipment would you use to incorporate mathematics into PE PE Equipment Heart Monitors Flash Cards Stop Watch Step Counter

6. How do you incorporate mathematics into the exercise aspect of Physical Education • Assign number amount to exercises • Example • 10 push ups • 20 sit-ups • 10 jumping jacks • Add the above for total amount of exercise • Require students to count while exercising • Example • Have students count exercises by 5 as a class • Require students to use math logic when exercising • Example • Top-taps- start at 16 and decrease by ½ that number and continue decreasing by half until reaching 1

7. How do you incorporate mathematics into the sports aspect of Physical Education • Jump Rope Yahtzee • Students role two dice and add them together and jump rope the value • Math Facts Basketball • Students solve math problem on flash card and then proceed to find the star with that value • Fraction Fold • Students fold a scarf that is the length of court into half then into one fourth and so on • Number Line Locomotion • Give the students a math problem while they are skipping and they must go to section of the line with the correct answer • Play For Pay • Students must be able to determine if they have enough coins to play at a certain station For more details on the above games visit http://www.pecentral.org/

8. How do you make it fun • Give the students a choice • Research and be prepared • Love what you are doing

9. Summary Most people think physical education teacher have an easy job. They are under the impression that physical education classes are all fun and games. The truth is that physical educators are required to incorporate other subject matters into their classes. Subjects such as math, science, spelling, and geography are integrated into PE classes. What it comes down to, Is how serious does the teacher takes his or her job.
