Down, Set, MATH!

The quarterback, Mr. Hazel, yells out the play to his team of former students, "Add up your player’s points!" Every Tuesday after school, Mr. Hazel and a group of 4th and 5th grade students meet to discuss football…and math. Together, they make up the Marvin Mustangs fantasy football team.

The team has 15 players, including Mr. Hazel. Everyone is competing online through NFLRush.com. However, it's not just fun and games. After picking individual team players for the current week, students use addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to solve problems using statistics. Each person is also responsible for graphing their weekly scores.

Every week brings new challenges for everybody…but, without Mr. Hazel we wouldn't be a complete team!
