This critical thinking worksheet involves problems related to Major League Baseball and ties to the Common Core. It incorporates basic and more complex operations, guess and check, making tables, comparing of numbers, place value and patterns. It is geared for students in grades 4 - 6 but would also work with gifted third graders. Since it is tied to baseball facts and statistics, it is highly motivating for students. Because some of the problems are more involved, it can be used in one sitting or can be broken up and used in more than one sitting. It is especially conducive to group work/group problem solving. An answer key is included.
