Atlantean Dodgeball

Develop ratios within sporting games. Class members watch a video about dodgeball and see how coaches compare the scores. Pupils then work with ratios to compare the scores throughout the tournament. Using their knowledge of ratios, they continue to make comparisons between sports teams and investigate part-to-part and part-to-whole relationships.
