Reproducible activity book
By Jack A. Coffland and David A. Coffland. Young basketball fans apply their math skills to gain new insight into a sport they enjoy.

Most statistics are provided in the book; a few activities require looking up statistics in the newspaper or online. Answer key. Illustrated. Good Year. 118 pages. Third Edition. ©2006.
