Design Game-Winning Strategies

EA SPORTS, the NFL Players Association (NFLPA), and Discovery Education have teamed up for a national educational program that taps into children’s excitement about football and video games to ignite a passion for math and science. EA SPORTS Madden NFL: Football by the Numbers is an initiative to engage students in grades 5–9 with science and math content through an interactive digital learning game. The educational program takes students inside the science and math behind football fundamentals and teaches them how and why certain offensive and defensive plays work. The program consists of interactive scenarios that are broken down into three sections: Explore, Learn, and Game Play. In “Explore,” students are introduced to football-related concepts, positions, and strategies that relate to the game. Students then “Learn” about specific math and science concepts as they relate to various offensive and defensive strategies. Students apply their learning during “Game Play.” The program also includes a virtual field trip to EA SPORT’s Tiburon development studio to meet the team behind the Madden NFL games and a local school community night featuring an NFL player, in addition to other learning tools. The program, which launched in December 2015, is available at no cost to educators, students, and parents worldwide.
