Pitch and Hit Data
Okay, engaging in a graphing activity may sound ho-hum, but if you use fun data, it changes the picture entirely. Combining an analytical activity, like graphing, with real world experiences shows your child that math is all around him. Graphing shows him a method of organizing and displaying the data he has collected. Using tally marks to record data is a fun way of keeping count. These skills will help your child master advanced graphing in the middle school as well as in high school.
So take advantage of the fresh air outdoors and your child's energy level, and start pitching, hitting, and graphing!
