Teaching Material of the Month: Shoot to Thrill

Penalty shoot-outs are among the most thrilling situations that can occur during a football match: In this teaching unit, game theory is being introduced to the students who learn to calculate the probability of scoring a goal and to optimise the chance to win the penalty shoot-out by taking into account basic mathematics. The material is taken from the brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' and can be downloaded here:
