sports and STEMOften when thinking about sports and STEM, students recognize physics concepts more easily than other areas. In gymnastics, there are a number of opportunities to explore STEM, including examining the engineering behind equipment, technology used to monitor athletic performance, and mathematics principles that exist through a gymnast’s movement. In this exercise from Schottenbauer Publishing, students will watch a video of a woman completing a simple somersault. The screen then leads students through plotting points on a graph that correspond to the location of the woman’s head and hips during the process of performing the movement. Through performing this exercise and answering questions, students will learn basic graph-reading and plotting concepts.
