Basketball math equations

We’re in the midst of summer school right now and it’s a lot of fun. I’ve been blessed with the ‘enrichment’ students, all of whom are very excited about learning. Since the students are there by choice, I try and make it worth their while. Because of the smaller numbers and some great help from students teachers who rotate through during the week, we can do a lot of fun projects.

After finishing up some equations work today, one of the student teachers told me about  One of the games (among many others) has the user solve equations of varying difficulty levels.  After completing a certain number, the user gets the opportunity to shoot a basket. It was very cool and a great extension for the lesson.  The students really enjoyed it and were challenging each other to get more correct.
