Participating in entertaining activities like sports and dance produces the kind of exertion our body needs, and mathematics is linked to these activities in a variety of ways. Angles are important to almost all sports that involve throwing, hitting, or kicking objects, and dancers create angles with their legs, particularly when they jump.

This episode challenges students to:
•Realize the parabolic motion that results from gravity’s influence is necessary to most sports that use a ball.
•Compute the best chances for scoring a goal on a soccer field.
•Understand that a 400-meter track has staggered starting places so that all runners travel the same distance.
•Calculate the distance runners would travel in their lanes on a 400-meter track, if they all started from the same point.
