Though to the average person Pro Football may not seem to correlate with science or mathematics, if one looks closely at the physical components of the game, they’ll see that football illustrates several fundamental concepts in physics, biomechanics and math. Concepts such as projectile motion, inertia, and kinematics are all fundamental to understanding the game of football from a scientific perspective. Source
Some of the components of football that make it so fun to watch can be explained by physics. For example, the shape of the ball; a football is based on a two-dimensional ellipse rather than being spherical like balls in other sports, which affects the way it travels through the air and the way it acts when colliding with the ground. Other acts in football that can be explained by physics include the kickoff and tackling. Source
Biomechanics, and Math
Intellectual Practice Learning takes practical theories and applies them to everyday activities so that students have working knowledge of how science, math, and physics affects everything, helping them retain more information and perform better.

Experience: She has been passionate about working with children from a very young age, and started volunteering in her freshman year of high school as a biomedical instructor, teaching children from low-income neighborhoods. During her time as a volunteer, she was able to educate through many different health experiments and teach not only what goes on in the body, but why it is important. As she got more involved, she began creating lesson plans to better engage the children. She also just recently started her own children's day camp where she is able to work with children outside of a classroom setting, teaching them important values through different activities that require communication and teamwork.
