This Sunday, Feb. 2, the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos will kick off in New Jersey for Super Bowl XLVIII (the 48th, for those unfamiliar with Roman numerals). To get into the spirit of the game try these football math problems from Paul Epner, the author of the Herbert Hilligan books, a series that mixes math with stories. Not only will these problems help you brush up on your addition, fractions and multiplication — you’ll soon know just what those touchdowns and field goals are worth. There are questions for every math level, starting with addition and multiplication and on through geometry. And you may find the Super Bowl more exciting while calculating the many-numbered possibilities on the way to victory!
