|Big Picture Learning|
|A card game that leverages the influence that National Basketball Association (NBA) and Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) stars have on American youth. Gameplay simulates a regulation basketball game, with pairs of students racing against a shot clock to do math correctly for a chance to take a shot with a member of their personally drafted team of NBA and WNBA players, complete with those players' real shooting percentages. Math explorations allow students to investigate and make meaning of the intricacies of the game, and provide multiple opportunities for students to apply many of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Mathematical Practices. NBA Math Hoops' partners include the NBA and toy maker Hasbro.|
