With the National Football League's 2010 season opening on Thursday, September 8, 2010, the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Broadcasting Company (NBC), and the NFL have teamed up with a series of videos called the 'Science of NFL Football.'

 


The ten-part series of videos explore 'the science behind America's most beloved sport,' as reported by the NSF's 'Science of NFL Football.'

NBC's Lester Holt, who is the weekend anchor of NBC Nightly News, leads the play-by-play discussions within these videos.

The ten-part series consists of topics such as vectors and ''¦how to use vectors to calculate the speed and direction needed for a completed pass' and projectile motion and parabolas and ''¦the significance of vertical and horizontal velocity on the trajectory every time an NFL punter kicks a football into the sky.'

According to the NSF, these videos are made ''¦ especially for students and teachers as they head back to the classroom.'

And, ''¦ these videos are aligned to lesson plans and national state education standards, and are available.'

The lesson plans that go along with the videos 'Science of NFL Football' are found at Lessonnopoly.org.
