  19. 19. Hidden Math in Baseball:<br />Batting Average: # of hits divided by # of at bats. Ex: 200 hits in 650 at bats is a .307 BA<br />Earned Run Average: # of earned runs divided by # of innings pitched multiplied by 9 <br />On Base Percentage: # of times reaching base divided by total # of at bats<br />Slugging Percentage: # of singles + (2 X # of doubles) + (3 X # of triples) + (4 X # of homeruns) all divided by the total # of at bats <br />Predicting the probability of scoring runs = (Hits + walks) + (Total Bases) / (At Bats + Walks)<br />Probability of winning a game: ½ X Runs scored season / Opponents’ Runs scored<br />The baseball “diamond” is really a square with 90 foot sides <br />The Pythagorean theorem can be used to find the distance from home plate to second base or from first base to third Ex: 90^2 + 90^2 = C^ 2 (8,100 +8,100) = 16,200 and the square root of that is 127.3 feet between <br />
  20. 20. Hidden Math in Baseball (Cont. )<br />The third base and first base foul lines intersect at home plate, creating 90 degree angles <br />The pitching mound, a circle, has an 18 foot diameter <br />Around first, second, and third base, there are 13 foot arcs <br />The angle at which a batter hits the ball is very important. For example, if a right handed batter connects his bat with the ball at a 90 degree angle, the ball will go to second base, on the right side of the infield. However, if the same batter hits the ball at a 45 degree angle, the ball will go to the left side of the infield, by the shortstop. <br />
  21. 21. Concept from another class: Ap Environmental science <br />There are multiple irrigation techniques that are used to manage crops and fields worldwide including flood irrigation, furrow irrigation, drip irrigation, and center pivot sprinkler systems<br />After the 1995 season at Dodger Stadium, the 100,000 square feet of Bermuda grass is grown on sand, and below the sand is a vacuum layer that holds a water tight barrier to hold rain water in. Moisture is monitored and controlled by a computer so that the grass will grow perfectly. <br />This is an example of drip irrigation because water is released through open tubing mounted below ground near the roots of individual plants. <br />
