*Bowling--if you calculate the score, instead of letting the computer calculate it, this is a great game for mental math.

*Baseball--1) you can average the number of points per minutes of the game

2) you can keep a running total of hits for your team each week and then average the number of hits per game for the whole team or an individual player.

3) you can just keep track of the scores and statistics.
