, is partnering with the NBA and education company Learn Fresh to create the NBA Math Hoops mobile app, to make distance learning more engaging for students.
With a $250,000 contribution from AT&T, Learn Fresh is enhancing the NBA Math Hoops mobile app and expanding its ability to reach students in need of support around the globe. NBA Math Hoops is a comprehensive community program that allows students to learn fundamental math skills through the game of basketball.
“In low-income communities, just 54% of eighth graders are performing at a basic level of proficiency in math. Failing a math class is a huge indicator for dropping out of high school,” said Nick Monzi, NBA Math Hoops Co-Founder and CEO. “In this current environment, it has never been more important to ensure students continue to grow their foundational math and social-emotional skills. With AT&T, we can continue scaling NBA Math Hoops and creating fun virtual programs like NBA Math Breaks, to serve more students around the world.”
In addition to this contribution, the NBA will launch NBA Math Breaks Presented by AT&T, a social content series inspired by the NBA Math Hoops program. This AT&T-sponsored series will feature members of the NBA and WNBA family as they work through elementary and middle-school level math problems that incorporate the game of basketball.
