Celebrating Euro 2016 with Mathletics!

What’s maths got to do with football?

Beyond simple score lines and match statistics, football and mathematics have a lot more in common than you might think!

Back in March this year, the Romanian national football team decided to use their status as professional sports personalities to raise the profile of mathematics for Romanian school children.

The team decided to replace standard shirt numbers on the backs of their training tops with maths equations for school children to calculate. You can find out more in this article by BBC Sport.
