Oakland A's starting pitcher Jesse Chavez will visit St. Elizabeth Elementary School on Wednesday, May 28 on behalf of the A's "Mathletics" program.
Mathletics is a unique program designed to stress the importance of students using math in their daily lives. The A's design and distribute workbooks, which use simple formulas for calculating statistics of A's players, to participating schools. Students in the first through eighth grades who complete their workbooks correctly and submit their answer sheets to the A's receive two free ticket vouchers.
Since the program was created in 2003, over 200,000 Bay Area and Northern California students have participated in the program. Mathletics is sponsored by Ross Stores and Comcast SportsNet California.
Wednesday, May 28 12:50-1:20 p.m.
