NBA Math Hoops has been an incredible experience for my whole class. As an educator, I always welcome new and innovative ways to teach math. The kids' math skills skyrocketed throughout the program. The regional tournament was so much fun and well organized at the Kings arena.  As if that wasn’t enough, the NBA Math Hoops National Championship was an amazing experience. Learn Fresh planned an extraordinary weekend for the kids, educators and parents. I am so excited to start the program again next school year.

Math Hoops really changed my math skills. It was so much fun playing the game that it made me want to study. I'll never forget the trip to the NBA Math Hoops National Championship. I made a bunch of friends and did things I've never done before.

Through the program, you see a shift in how a child perceives what it means to be a mathematician. Another thing you begin to see is a lessening of math anxiety. I think lots of students are interested in math class, and when you see students laughing and having fun [while playing the game], there’s no anxiety present. When you can get rid of all the fear associated with math, you’re able to really open up students’ minds to actually engage with learning, rather than being afraid of just being in the classroom or getting the wrong answer.
