Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of Math in Sports from Children's Bookwatch on October 1, 2013

Cover: Auto Racing: Math at the Racetrack

Especially for young boys in grades 2 through 5, the use of sports to teach basic math skills is an especially useful classroom strategy. That’s why The Child’s World Math in Sports series would make a particularly valued addition to classroom and home school basic mathematics instruction curriculums. This outstanding series of six titles includes Auto Racing: Math at the Racetrack; Baseball: Math at the Ballpark; Basketball: Math on the Court; Football: Math on the Gridiron; Hockey: Math at the Rink; and Soccer: Math on the Field. Each 32 page title is enhanced with full-color photography and features a reinforced library binding for an extended shelf life, a table of contents, informative sidebars, a glossary of key words and phrases, sources for further research (including thematically appropriate web sites), a comprehensive index, tables and graphs, and sample math problems. Although the six titles comprising this superbly crafted and produced Math in Sports series can be obtained individually ($27.07 List /, $18.95 Library), grade school libraries especially would do well to acquire the entire series intact ($162.42 List /, $113.70 Library).
