Bring Math to Life with Balls, Strikes & Hits

Math is everywhere, but nowhere is it more interesting than when it’s part of the great American pastime. This workbook is a fun and engaging way to practice your math skills by relating every problem to baseball. Each activity in the book is based on real baseball situations, like batting averages, pitching speed and even stadium size. Use these scenarios to improve your math skills while also learning more about the game of baseball, on and off the field.

You can go straight through the book, practicing each skill, or you can go to a specific chapter you need more practice with. Each chapter focuses on a different math skill:

• Numbers in Base Ten
• Operations and Algebraic Thinking
• Number and Operations in Fractions
• Measurement and Data
• Geometry
