PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you interested in developing your students' understanding of decimals and statistics using baseball? This activity focuses on the skills of computing and comparing batting averages, as well as seeing what effect a "hit" can have on a player's average; that is, a player with fewer "at bats" will get a bigger "bump" from a hit, than a player with many at bats. This activity encourages students to see that a single statistic cannot tell you everything about the quality of a baseball player.
