Action Math Baseball History
Simulation-based educational programs provide a real-world environment for students to experience relevance and appreciation for learning.
One such program was created by a middle-school teacher, Tim Scheidt, who observed the ambivalence of mathematics in many of his eighth-grade students. Drawing from his love of baseball, he created an engaging, comprehensive, and mathematically rich learning experience for his students. Tim received a middle school mathematics teacher of the year award for his efforts.
eLEARNster, an educational software company, recognized the value of the program and implemented an online version. Using the power of the Internet, Action Math Baseball leverages many sound educational practices that creates a positive learning environment and promotes student growth and participation.
