Ball! is designed to help students understand the connection between sports, data collection and statistical analysis. As the students play each “game,” they will collect, organize, display and analyze the data from the game results.
Out! is designed to help students understand how to use fractions, decimals and percents in the context of restaurants and money. In this day of credit and gift cards, children do not have as many real-life opportunities to count money and make change.
These activities will keep those skills fresh, even with older students.
