Score with Sports Math

This six book series shows upper elementary readers how math is used in sports. General rules and facts about the sport opens each chapter and is followed by sample math problems showing how math is used in the sport.

Written by Stuart A.P. Murray, each 48-page book covers a different sport (baseball, basketball, football, race car, soccer, and track and field). Your readers will learn about some of the history behind these sports, as well as practice doing some math!

The Score with Sports Math series is available in library, paperback, and eBook options. This series is currently being matched up with the Common Core anchor standards, and this information will be added to our website when available.

Looking for math books for your sports fans?

Written for the upper elementary student, learn math concepts through sports examples. Each chapter opens with general rules and facts about that particular sport, and then math examples are shown, demonstrating
how math is used in that particular sport. Curious to know how large the penalty box is in soccer? Score with Soccer Math gives you the formula.

For the race car fan, how much total time does a race car lose during pit stops in a 500-mile race? Score with Race Car Math instructs the reader how to calculate that number.

The other four titles in the series, Score with Track and Field Math, Score with Football Math, Score with Basketball Math, and Score with Baseball Math, all follow the same format. Teachers stopping by our booth at BookExpo America liked looking through these titles!

All six of these titles, available in both library and paperback editions, can be ordered from your preferred vendor, independent bookstore, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.

Enslow Sports Fiction Offers Young Readers Engaging Summertime Reading

Now that we're into the dog days of summer, librarians face the challenge of providing young readers with fun, engaging books. Options that fit the season include Enslow Publishers' sports fiction titles. These new, 100+-page works provide page-turning reasons for young patrons to feel excited about reading. Each fast-paced book delivers a story about peer-appropriate characters in dramatic situations centered on popular sports, such as baseball, soccer, and football. The high-interest narrative approach also embraces how the characters interact with important values, including sportsmanship, fair play, and teamwork. The books, written by David Aretha, Kris Rutherford, Stuart A.P. Murray, and Benjamin Jarman, are excellent choices for reluctant readers, as well as those with a strong interest in sports.

Enslow currently offers five sports fiction titles suitable for readers in Grades 3 through 6. Each title is available in paperback for $9.95. A library-bound edition is also available for $19.95 -- a 25% school/library discount from Enslow's list price!
