        Thinkport | Angles in Soccer

        Explore the role of angle measurement in soccer—in particular, angles that players’ legs form when kicking—in this video from MPT. In the accompanying classroom activity, students “act out” leg and arm positions for soccer and other familiar sports and estimate the angles that their arms and legs form. They then classify images of athletes according to the angles that their arms and legs make. To get the most from the lesson, students should be comfortable using protractors to measure angles from 0 to 360°. For a longer self-paced student tutorial using this media, see "Angles in Soccer" on Thinkport from Maryland Public Television.
