Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dawna Lisa Buchanan
Here is another in a series of informational books featuring sports and math in a high-appeal format. Richly colored photographs of football players, teams and games are punctuated by explanatory text and insets that feature math problems. Examples range from algebra to geometry, linking the sport and mathematics in a series of short, dense chapters. These are nicely organized to present a developmental perspective. The introductory piece gives an overview of football and how math is related to the sport, followed by chapters about the "basics," "offense," and "defense and special teams." The concluding discussion is titled "applying the math." Sports fans will love the brief descriptions of highlights from famous games and the real life uses of mathematical functions to calculate scores, averages and winning points. The book also features a glossary, a short resource list, Internet resources and an index. Teachers will delight in this excellent resource, as will reluctant readers and readers who are fearful of math. The is produced with high quality paper and binding to withstand handling in classrooms or libraries. Reviewer: Dawna Lisa Buchanan
