Fractions of the squad

Describe a football team using fractions and percentages

In this fun maths activity, students will test their fractions and percentage skills by looking at football squads. Before a big competition a squad is selected and from that the final team will be chosen. In this activity we describe the squad using fractions and percentages and then select a team. 

The purpose of this activity is to deepen understanding of fractions and percentages as ways to describe proportion or parts of a whole. There are opportunities to look at equivalent fractions and equivalence between fractions and percentages.
