Title: Soccer Trigonometry

1
Soccer Trigonometry
• Play smart not hard.

2
SAY WHAT?
• Here is a lesson that blends trig and a key
player in a soccer match, the goalie.

3
Point number one
• Students should see very easily from this diagram
that in order to block the shot, the goalie
(black dot) must move to one side or the other up
to the length of the green line A.

4
Point number two
• If the goalie were to advance some distance out
of the goal it would decrease that blocking
distance to a smaller green line A.

5
Lets do trig
• Given this diagram and some key measurements,
students should be able to apply trigonometry
concepts to find the new distance A. Answers
follow.

6
Given Information
• Given information is left to teachers discretion
due to diversity in knowledge level of students.
• Length of the goal (dark black line)
• The distance of the shooter from the goal
(I.e. line DE).
• The distance of the goalies advance namely line
E
• note shooter is positioned such that line C is
exactly half that of the goal.
