The Dodgers recently piloted “Dodgers Mathletics”, a fun and engaging educational workbook for students to enhance and practice their math skills in the Dodgers’ Community of Schools. “Dodgers Mathletics” is an initiative from the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation that promotes the importance of math to students in the 1st through 8th grades by offering a workbook filled with Dodger baseball related math exercises.
The Los Angeles Dodgers “Community of Schools” is a partnership effort that focuses on student achievement, health & wellness, recreation attending local schools and living in communities surrounding Dodger Stadium through educational programs, civic engagement, strategic partnerships and student incentives.
On Friday, Principals and Teachers from Allessandro Elementary School, Ann Elementary School, Castellar Elementary School, Clifford Elementary School, Dorris Place Elementary School, Logan Elementary School, Solano Elementary School and King Middle School joined with the Dodgers to debrief and provide further feedback on “Dodgers Mathletics”. Their participation helped us solicit the feedback that will strengthen this program and make it more appropriate and vital to students and math curriculum for the next school year.
