  1. Winning at Math and Writing with Sports Card Games Numbers On The Court Numbers On The Diamond

  2. Why sports games work? • Create an emotional context to care about the numbers • Competition- equal chance of winning • Create teams with popular players the students choose • Control of their own team, decision-making like a real coach • Sportsmanship

  3. What’s in the Guide? • Objectives • Definition of Terms • Implementation Levels • Integration across the curriculum • Reproducible handouts Handouts: Team Roster - Rule Reminders - Sample League Schedule Sample Tournament Schedule - Blank Tournament Schedule Blank Score Sheets - Sample Score Sheets Sample Statistics & Explanation of Math Computations Blank Statistics Form Descriptive Summary Article Form & Writing Helps Descriptive Summary Sample Articles NOTC/NOTD Certificates & Recognition

  4. Draft DayCreate the atmosphere • Choose playing format Tournament/Series/League • Draft teams and players Choose local, college, or professional athletes male and female • Create pennants • Schedule games

  6. NOTC Score sheet Visiting Team

  7. Basketball Game Day • Complete roster on score sheet • Shuffle and begin play • Take turns drawing and recording points, rebounds, and assists for 5 players per quarter • Make substitution decisions after each quarter • Shuffle at half time • Complete scores and individual statistics at the end of the game • Declare game winner/Post results • Assign Descriptive Summary

  8. Mathematical Computation • Numbers and Operations • Percentage/Average/Projections • Problem Solving/Reasoning • Algebra • Data Analysis • Representation • Probability

  9. Team and Player Roster

  10. Baseball Game Day • Complete roster on score sheet • Shuffle and begin play • Visiting team manager draws at bat cards until 3 outs, recording action in order from the card • Home manager follows, shuffle after the 3rd and 6th inning • Complete scores and individual statistics at the end of the game • Declare game winner/Post results • Assign Descriptive Summary

  11. NOTD Score sheet

  12. Descriptive SummariesNewspaper Article • Headlines that get Attention • Descriptive Summaries- analyze the data in a meaningful way • Writing beyond the score to engage the audience • Sports journalism

  13. Descriptive SummariesNewspaper Article • Steady rallied from a 14 point half time deficit to defeat the Mix 102 to 79. Pete Jones led the Steady in scoring in the pivotal third quarter with 12 points. Starting forward Kevin Williams of the Mix was ejected shortly after the start of the 4th quarter for arguing a call by head referee Travis Douglass. With their explosive seventh game performance, the Steady wins the best of 7 series, 4 games to 3, after blowing a commanding 3 game to none lead. The Steady was led in scoring by Pete Jones and Michael Chambers who both had 21 points apiece. Ashley Smith, Tracy McGift, and Carl Garner also scored in double figures with 19, 18, and 15 points respectively. When series MVP Michael Chambers was asked about Steady blowing a commanding 3 game lead and then finding a way to win game 7, he said, “We knew we had everything working against us and we knew if we were going to turn this around in the decisive third quarter we were going to have to do it ourselves. So we just made a conscious effort to defend every play and execute our offense in the third quarter.” The Mix was led in scoring by Marcus Powles who had 25 points and hauled down 15 rebounds. Byron Wagner was the only other Mix player to crack double figures in scoring. He finished with 14 points. Steady Pulls Off 7th Game Upset for Series Win

  14. Integration Art • Create team pennants • Design team logos • Make individual player trading cards • Create certificates of recognition for various winners • Spreadsheets for statistics and data analysis • Creating schedules and writing articles Foreign Language • Translate game summaries and articles into the different languages of the student population • Audio broadcasts of NOTC games in different languages Geography • Label the locations of teams on a map • Study the economic viability of team locations to establish market realities • Locate birth places of players Music • Identify a theme song for each team • Sequence appropriate music that could be played strategically during a basketball game Computer Science

  15. Sportsmanship • If a coach/owner is absent on their scheduled game day they forfeit the game. • Final game scores should be verified for accuracy. • A handshake of good sportsmanship is expected at the end of each game.

  16. Entrepreneurial SkillsSports as Business • Students manage contracts of professional players • Use statistics to negotiate performance standards for individual contracts
