‘Strat School’ Launches To Help Children Learn Math, Statistics, More While Having Fun Remotely

Strat School Basic 4+6Mathematics, statistics and probability can be difficult concepts for children to grasp, even in normal teaching settings. With distance and “virtual” learning the norm for many this fall, the challenge of understanding these and other academic disciplines may be even greater. Strat-O-Matic (www.strat-o-matic.com), the leader in sports simulation games, has helped launch “Strat School,” a FREE platform which will help kids, especially budding sports fans, learn basics and even more advanced math, writing and more through its new series of lesson plans aimed at kids ages 6- 9 and ages 10 and up.

Strat-O-Matic offers detailed lesson plans for teachers and parents interested in using the game as a teaching device. For kids ages 6-9, Strat-O-Matic Baseball Express helps children learn about making decisions using probability, computing statistics like batting average and ERA, and developing writing skills with simple game recaps, among others. For ages 10 and up, Strat-O-Matic Baseball takes it to the next level, with higher math and statistics, emphasis on the quick computation that comes with each dice roll and ways to encourage students to learn more about the players from sets like the Hall of Famers, and even about the civil rights movement through Strat’s Negro League Stars.

Strat School Advanced Dice Sum ChancesThe skills that kids can learn while playing Strat-O-Matic board games come naturally. How often is this particular batter likely to get a hit or home run? Which relief pitcher would be most effective against the upcoming batter? How is ERA calculated? What are the key moments of the game to include in a written recap? What more can students learn about particular historically significant players? In the fun environment of playing Strat-O-Matic baseball, all of these educational benefits are possible.

“Playing Strat-O-Matic has always been a great way for kids to enhance important skills almost unconsciously,” said Hal Richman, Strat-O-Matic President. “By following our comprehensive plans, teachers and parents can help them stay engaged as they learn not just the math and statistics that are inherent to game play, but lessons like writing and history that are natural extensions of enjoying the game.” 

Those interested in learning more about how Strat-O-Matic can be a valuable teaching tool can contact Strat-O-Matic at customerservice@strat-o-matic.com. A series of short videos highlighting some of these benefits are available on the Strat-O-Matic YouTube page at https://www.youtube.com/StratOMaticMarketing
