Fractions of the squad

Describing your squad and 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. Can someone else work out which team you have selected from the fractions and percentages you have used to describe it?

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.
