The NBA Math Hoops board game was developed in an educator's classroom and has scaled to reach over a quarter million students nationwide. All games are produced by Hasbro and focus on foundational math skills for elementary and middle school students.


The digital board game adaptation brings the original NBA Math Hoops gaming experience to life online. The game extends the program experience by including a broader range of featured athletes, regularly updated data, and a classroom league infrastructure for educators.


The mobile app creates practice opportunities for foundational K-8 math skills, including basic operations, number identification, roots, exponents, fractions, decimals, and percentages. The game features a series of mini-games that integrate NBA and WNBA team brands.


The NBA Math Hoops program is extended beyond the classroom through a series of unique events and experiences. Each fall, the program is launched with educator training camps, hosted virtually with Learn Fresh program staff. Events like NBA Math Hoops Live provide students with an opportunity to engage directly with NBA and WNBA stars, and season-ending championship tournaments celebrate students’ participation in the program. These championships are held online and in-person, both at the regional and national levels. Explore the videos below to learn more about these special experiences.
