Real life issues in the life of a fictional Subject Leader Game, set and match

What is the least number of points you could gain to win a game of tennis? 15 – 0 30 – 0 40 – 0 game So how about a set, or a women’s singles match?

What is the maximum number of points you could gain and still lose a game of tennis ? ∞ Let’s put in some restrictions: Perhaps limit the number of times the game can go to deuce? YOU decide

So: With the restrictions you have decided, what is the maximum number of points you could gain and still lose a game of tennis? What is the maximum number of points you could gain and still lose a women’s tennis match? What is the maximum number of points you could gain and still lose a men’s tennis match at Wimbledon? What is the maximum number of points you could gain and still lose a set at tennis ?

Up2d8 maths Game, set and match Teacher Notes

Game, set and match Introduction: The Key Stage 3 programme of study suggests that pupils are given opportunities to: work on problems that arise in other subjects and in contexts beyond the school This Up2d8 resource uses the context of the Wimbledon tennis tournament to answer the questions: What is the least number of points you could gain to win a game, set or match of tennis? What is the maximum number of points you could gain and still lose a game, set or match of tennis? Content objectives: In order to explore mathematical situations, carry out tasks or tackle problems, pupils: identify the mathematical aspects solve simple problems involving ratio and direct proportion find and describe in words the rule for the next term or nth term of a sequence where the rule is linear pose questions and make convincing arguments to justify generalisations or solutions recognise the impact of constraints or assumptions Process objectives: These will depend on the way in which you structure the activity. It might be worth considering how you’re going to deliver the activity and highlighting the processes that this will allow on the diagram below:
