Physics of Sports

As a lifelong sports fan, I've always been interested in the science behind the sport. Relating physics to sports is a great way to peak the interest of students who love sports, but don't enjoy Physics as much as they could. I've found a few links that explain the science behind sports that I've enjoyed quite a bit and I think you might too:

Physics of Football:

Physics of Hockey:

Physics of Basketball:

Physics of Baseball:

Physics of Volleyball:

Physics of Soccer:

Enjoy! Using sports to teach children about science can be rewarding for all involved. After football practice yesterday, my kids received a geometry lesson (teaching angles of pursuit) and they were all ears and enthusiastic!

Have a great summer!
