    baseball multiplication
    By Christina

    We use Everyday Math and that program has a game called Baseball Multiplication. There is a black line master of a baseball diamond with the bases, a place to mark strike outs, and a place to mark runs. The "pitcher" rolls two die and the "batter" multiplies the numbers together and says the answer. Correct answer = a hit; incorrect, a strike. Students move their game pieces (pennies, whatever) on the master until they make up to 3 home runs. Then the "pitcher" and "batter" trade roles. You could always expand this to make it life-size or modify it to be addition, subtraction, division. Hope that helps!
