'Trivia’s not important': UNC associate professor Matthew Andrews uses baseball to teach history


Teaching associate professor Matthew Andrews starts the first day of his HIST 362: Baseball and American History class each spring with a trivia quiz. Students answer about 10 baseball questions. “At the end of the quiz, after I tell them what the answers are, I tell them to take their papers, crumple them up and throw them away,” Andrews said.
