As a group, we believe this online game Batter’s Up Baseball is a great
game to review the students math skills and at the same time keeps the students
interested in wanting to review their math skills in order to win the baseball game.
This educational game is also great for teachers to implement into their lessons
and include in their classrooms.
This game is best used for helping students review on simple one-digit to
difficult three-digit addition/multiplication problems this all depends on the level of
difficulty the students choose. Students could choose the level they are most
comfortable with once they are comfortable they could choose a more
challenging level. Other than having the opportunity to choose a level and
challenging a “visitor” team, there are other factors that make this game so
One factor that makes this game interesting are the graphics. Although
the graphics are basic in colors, the game is still interesting enough to grab the
attention of the students. The sounds are appropriate and relates to the game.
Since the game is about baseball, the game plays the “Take me out to the ball
game” song and the umpire calls strikes, hits, and homeruns which will help the
students imagine themselves playing a real baseball game.
Overall, the concept of baseball is a great way to keep the students
interested in learning their addition and multiplication skills.
