Summary

This middle school mathematics unit is organized around themes relating to sports activities in the Boston (Massachusetts) region and has a content focus on decimals and percents. The activities follow a story line which features a sports reporter (the student) and his/her assignments and adventures. Each activity begins with a headline, defines a task, and includes a follow-up question. The unit is organized by categories dealing with: (1) Sullivan Stadium (and football); (2) Fenway Park (and baseball); (3) Boston Garden (and basketball and hockey); (4) the Boston Marathon; and (5) Miscellaneous Sports. The unit could also be arranged by season, content development sequence, or activity. The materials include student worksheets, fact sheets, editor's notes, transparency masters and game cards. The math themes that extend throughout the activities include problem solving, mental arithmetic, graphing, and calculator use. The teacher's section of the unit also includes materials for mapping activities and a bibliography of related resources. (TW)
