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.

NBA Math Hoops allowed all my students to be engaged in play, and at the same time engaged in reinforcing important math skills such as computational fluency. Students that may be bored by pencil and paper practice enthusiastically practiced multiplying, dividing, adding, and subtracting while playing NBA Math Hoops. Watching the smiles on the students' faces as they played showed me a change in their attitudes.
