The Science of Skateboarding, Bicycling, and More

Earlier this week I shared some resources from ESPN and Well Home that deal with the math and science of sports. Another resource students can explore to learn about the science of sports is Exploratorium's Sports Science website. Exploratorium's Sports Science site contains many pages on which students can explore the math and science of team sports as well as the individual sports of bicycling and skateboarding. The bicycling section has a calculator that students can use to calculate the aerodynamic drag and propulsion power of a bicyclist.
