Batter Up! Hands-on learning at the MSU-SOSD Partnership School last week [Mar. 10] had sixth graders learning statistics by finding their batting averages as they swung to hit baseballs. University students in MSU Math Instructor Julie Nation's class helped the young learners with their calculations, and the Diamond Girls for the Bulldog baseball team supported the outside activity. The Partnership School is in its third year of educating all sixth and seventh graders in the SOSD district, while university students train there as future teachers.
