Rugby World Cup 2019 Trip - Maths Task

This resource is a Rugby World Cup themed maths investigation that involves pupils finding out whether £4000 is enough money to pay for a trip to England’s pool matches at the Rugby World Cup in Tokyo. Pupils calculate the total cost of match tickets, return flights, accommodation, meals and travel to and from the airport. They are required to calculate the exchange rate for pounds to yen and yen to pounds. Having calculated the cost, pupils need to work out whether £4000 is enough money to cover the cost of the trip and to find the difference.

An additional task involves pupils ‘packing their suitcase’ making sure that it does not exceed the 20 kilogram luggage allowance. This requires pupils investigating the weight of items they are likely to pack and the weight of the suitcase itself.
