Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion For Educators Designed by Stephen Taylor, Summer Emich, Catie Hickin, Courtney White Based on a template from The WebQuest Page The WebQuest Page Module 7: Webquest to Math and Sports Finding New Hitters for the Akron Rubber Ducks

Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Math is typically known as a hard and boring subject. People do not realize that math is actually in everyday things that we do. Math can be fun and very engaging. In this webquest you will see that math and sports are related when looking to pick new players for the Akron Rubber Ducks Team. The Akron Rubber Ducks are looking to trade for consistent hitters. To find these consistent hitters they are on the look out for high Batting Averages. Batting averages are calculated by dividing the number of hits a player has by the total number of at bats they have had, this will then result in a decimal. The teams the Akron Rubber Ducks have ability to tade with are the Carolina Mud Cats, Pensacola Blue Wahoos, and the Midland Rock Hounds. You will be examining and comparing the individual statistics for the players on these teams to find one player from each team that the Akron Rubber Ducks should make a trade for. Introduction

Find one player from the Midland Rock Hounds with the highest batting average 4. List these players out and compare their statistics 5. Finally determine who would be the best player to trade onto the Akron Rubber Ducks team! 6. Write a one paragraph response summarizing what you learned about averaging statistics and what player you thought would be best for the Akron Rubber Ducks. Also include a list that ranks the three players based on their batting averages.
