Baseball Hall of Fame Private Videoconference Program – Mathematics: Geometry – Circling the Bases

BaseballHOF Logo

Program Description:
One of the great features of baseball stadiums and fields is that no two are alike. Outfielders need to know the dimensions and special characteristics of the fields in which they play to help them decide how to field the ball - do they play the fly ball off the wall or try to jump and catch it for an out? Spend time in a dugout full of shapes, area, perimeter, diameter, and other aspects of geometry while learning about some of the "angles" of playing baseball. During the videoconference, students will work with museum teachers to reinforce concepts and ideas introduced in the classroom.
