April showers bring Math Awareness Month 2010 and a new activity calendar
What goes into Drew Brees’ awe-inspiring tosses, the jump shots of Lebron James, and bending it like Beckham?
Amazing athletic ability – of course. Practice, timing, and maybe a sprinkle of luck – no doubt. Most people don’t think about it, but there’s also a lot of math behind that sports magic. DreamBox Learning dedicated our new activities calendar to April’s Math Awareness Month 2010 (also known as Mathematics Awareness Month).
You guessed it — 2010’s Math Awareness Month theme is mathematics & sports.
With the spring temperatures, it’s time to get out there and play. Since it’s Math Awareness Month, find out if humidity affects a home run. Or what mechanics do to your golf swing. It’s a great time to get everyone’s math awareness levels rising.
Also, don’t forget to ask your kids to total their highest word scores on Scrabble Day, or help their sisters and brothers with math homework on National Siblings Day. And keep watch because DreamBox Learning’s 3rd grade math games will bloom in early April. We can’t wait for what’s in store next month!
