NBA Math Hoops: Creating the Next Math Champion! (Sponsored Product Demo)
NBA Math Hoops features a comprehensive community program, digital and physical board game, mobile app, and curriculum that allows students to learn fundamental math and social-emotional skills through the game of basketball and the NBA/WNBA. All program content is developed in alignment with Common Core State Standards and 21st Century Learning Skills, and has been shown to improve students’ foundational math and social-emotional skills. We explicitly strive to reach students who have historically been underrepresented in STEM fields, specifically girls, students of color, and students from under-resourced communities.

Through our webinar, educators will learn best practices for implementing the NBA Math Hoops game and curriculum in either a facilitated or independent learning environment, gain FREE access to the Learn Fresh program management platform and all program materials, and learn about opportunities to extend students’ learning through virtual and in-person community events.

Speakers

Calvin Sibert
Chief Academic Officer @Learn Fresh
Calvin Sibert is a “Game Changer.” His innate ability to impact change is evident in the way in which he approaches the classroom, his role as a father and his community involvement. He attended Western Michigan University and received his baccalaureate degree in education in 2002. Upon completing his degree, he initially had aspired to become a print and runway model. Nevertheless, he knew that he had been called by God to become a “role” model instead for students in the inner city of Detroit. During his 20 years in the field of education, he has coached basketball, soccer, and cross country. In addition, he founded a ballroom dancing league called “The Smooth League” which introduced young people to the intricacies of ballroom dancing along with its etiquette and protocols. He is the quintessential mentor, coach and encourager. His interests include ballroom dancing, trying new restaurants, listening to motivational speakers, and spending time with family.
