Baseball & Math
Baseball and math have always been closely tied. Whether you are counting runs, calculating batting averages, or figuring out a pitcher’s earned run average, you are doing math. Spend some time talking about baseball or other sport statistics with your little fan.
Another way for baseball fans to play with numbers and play some virtual baseball is to visit http://www.funbrain.com/math/index.html and play Math Baseball. Your child can choose to practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. They can select from 4 different difficulty levels: easy, medium, hard, or super brain. If they answer a question correctly their team will earn a single, double, triple, and home run. The correct answers will move the players around the bases and score runs.
