NBA MATH HOOPS is a fast-paced basketball board game, curriculum, and community program that allows students to learn fundamental math skills through direct engagement with real statistics of their favorite NBA and WNBA players. The NBA Math Hoops curriculum is tied to Common Core Standards and 21st Century Learning Skills, and it has been shown to improve students’ basic math skills and understanding of statistics, in addition to their interpersonal skills, driving them to collaborate more effectively with their peers.
