Math doesn’t always comes easy to students, but with a new program that’s revolutionizing how the subject is being taught, that doesn’t have to be the case. Organized by the QSLA (Quantum Sports Learning Association), ‘BallMatics‘ makes math easy by incorporating basketball skill building with math activities. Working with kids who struggle with math, every practice is a combination of selected topics from curriculum documents mixed with basketball drills, and is offered for students from Grade 3 to Grade 12. Even high school students have access to this – after keeping stats, they’ll write weekly game summaries and highlights.
QSLA has partnered up with MLSE Launchpad to launch a 42,000 square foot sports centre in downtown Toronto to deliver sports programs to more students and a larger audience! They’re currently renovating it into a recreational space with a sports court, where they will offer ‘BallMatics’ daily. To donate to their renovations so more even students can benefit from this groundbreaking program, check out their GoFundMe page, and watch the video above to learn more!
