Summary
Sports are more than just decisions being made on the move. Coaches must determine a strategy that takes into account the strengths and weaknesses of each team based on statistics and matchups. And athletes must constantly evaluate how to be successful based on their knowledge of the opponent in front of them in that moment. Following fifth grade Common Core standards, this book takes a look at how athletes, coaches, and fans use different types of math to create a holistic plan for play and engagement, while helping readers understand how to evaluate the gambles of sports.

Summary
The motivation to learn something new often comes from realizing how useful that knowledge will be in the future. This title helps provide that motivation for young math students by showing them ways various math operations are used in everyday financial transactions, from shopping to banking. To ease the intimidation some students feel about math, examples include simple tasks most students may already be doing. Content builds on this past experience and gives readers a possible glimpse of their futures by also briefly introducing financial careers that relate to some of the tasks used as examples.
