Library Media Connection - Dr. Tom Johnson, Technology Integration Specialist, The Hockaday School, Dallas,

"Relevance is an important aspect of learning and an interested student will be able to link math skills and sports in these Sports Illustrated Kids books. For example, baseball data is used to figure batting averages, the Pythagorean Theorem is used to figure angles in hockey, basic statistics are calculated using football statistics, and geometry is explored by figuring the area of various parts of the basketball court. Each book is visually appealing and reflects the high energy level of these athletic activities using popular athletes and exciting action shots. The publisher’s portal leads to websites for more information related to the book. A student that is interested in athletics will be able to relate to the math principles that are a part of these various sports. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
