Sixers Math Hoops
Sixers Math Hoops is an exciting, fast-paced, basketball-themed board game and curriculum that teaches students fundamental life skills such as sportsmanship, teamwork and problem-solving while also fostering their math literacy and appreciation skills. Students have the opportunity to “draft” their favorite Sixers and other NBA and WNBA players while improving not only their math skills and understanding of statistics, but also their ability to collaborate more effectively with their peers.
More than 1,300 students participated in Math Hoops across Philadelphia and Camden during the 2017-2018 academic year.
