STEM in Sports: Math

by James Buckley Jr.

In sports, 2 + 2 now equals winning. In this book, explore the many relationships between mathematics and sports. Start with the obvious--uniform numbers and stats--and continue with high-level analytics that are changing how teams are formed and how games are played. Math can make a basketball player more accurate and a football coach more successful. Knowing the numbers can make an everyday athlete more efficient and turn a racing team into a champion. Count it up: Math in sports is Number One! The entire STEM in SPORTS series tells the story of how science, technology, engineering, and math are not just an exciting and innovative part of education, but also part of the winning formula for success in sports. In this series, find out how these fields of study are hard at work on the fields of play.
