News: Cricket, a great game for maths!

cricketCricket – we love it!
It’s going to be one of the best summer’s ever for cricket fans. Already we are into the West Indies tour. Later we have the ICC World Twenty20 Competition, quickly followed by the latest Ashes series.
In schools, cricket is expanding again with the ‘Chance to shine’ (C2S) project, the biggest school sport-development initiative ever! And not least, cricket must be the best sports ever for maths! It abounds with maths, from adding a team’s score, working out runs per wicket, averages for batsmen and runs per over needed to win a one day game.
And don’t forget as a die has six sides it is ideal for designing simple little cricket games – just ask your year 6’s to have a go now that SAT’s are over.
