SLJ Review of Sports STEM
Want to show fans of athletics how STEM applies to their favorite activities? This series takes science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and shows them in action on the field, the court, or the rink. Readers will learn about the physics of pitching, the tech of sensors used to monitor performance, the ingenious ways engineers can convert playing fields from soccer to football use, or how geometry applies to goalies. The books are filled with captioned photos that capture the action and diagrams to illustrate concepts. Each titles ends with a “Do the Math!” section that asks readers to calculate the highest points-per-game, earned run average, and other stats. A glossary defines the terms found in bold print throughout the text. Recommended books for further reading and links to the Factsurfer website encourage exploration. VERDICT: High-interest titles that will update collections and satisfy sports enthusiasts.
