Maths Key Stage 3 - Rugby Pythagoras challenge

321 Go! is a sports-maths challenge show which reveals how important maths is to sport.

Two rugby-mad Key Stage 3 schoolchildren are taken on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. They meet two Welsh Rugby Union stars, Lloyd Williams and Harry Robinson, and are set a sports maths challenge related to rugby.

They must work out how far the rugby ball travels in a straight line when it is kicked over the posts from a given spot on the pitch.

Having completed the challenge, the two children are presented with 3,2,1, Go! medals by our two rugby player stars.
