Wastepaper Basketball Math
If your child is in the decimal doldrums, or suffering from acute fear of fractions, take heart. They're probably just struggling to understand how numbers on a page can relate to the "real world" outside the classroom. In fact, kids can greatly further their understanding of ratios by applying them to events in their everyday lives. This game of wastepaper basketball not only gives kids and their parents a chance to play together, but it's also an enjoyable way to demonstrate how recorded results can be expressed in whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. So get your mental sneakers on and start shooting!
