We all have seen a baseball card! It features a famous baseball player and his stats. The Mathematician Baseball Card Project uses the same principal of traditional baseball cards. They feature a famous mathematician and his/her accomplishments. It will help students become more aware of mathematicians of the past and present. They will research a famous mathematician and create a baseball card. This card will include a picture of the mathematician, date of birth, birthplace, and interesting facts. The students will then sum up their mathematician with one word that best describes his/her accomplishments.
Included in this project are directions, helpful websites, a test (to assess the students knowledge of their mathematician) and 3 examples of baseball cards.
