11 Everyday Ways to Learn Math While Having Fun

Sports Spectator


Summertime means baseball. The next time you take your child to a game, incorporate a few math games while you cheer on your favorite team.

Have your child play umpire and ask him to keep count of each batter's balls and strikes. Additionally, he can also keep track of the outs every inning, and how many innings are left before the game is over. Ask him questions, such as what inning marks the halfway point in the game, and how many runs the losing team needs to catch up.

If a certain player on one of the teams is close to breaking a record, such as homeruns, have your child figure out how many more he needs to meet and break the record.

Math games like these will not only sharpen your child's mind, it will make him appreciate the sport even more. Score!
