Free technology for teachers: NBA Math Hoops

NBA Math Hoops is a free iPad and Android app for practicing addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skills. The app can be used by students who do not have an email address. There is also the option to create an account to save ongoing games.

The NBA Math Hoops pit players against NBA and WNBA players for math skills. Players score points by answering a series of math questions correctly. Wrong answers change the result and the other team gets the ball. If the questions are not answered before the end of the shot clock, the ball is given to the other team. Players may try to steal the ball by pointing out the wrong answer to a question.

Applications for education

NBA Math Hoops can be a fun way for elementary school students to practice their math skills while competing against their favorite NBA and WNBA players. This is the kind of app I would install on classroom iPads or Android tablets so that students can use it for free practice when they have a little unscheduled time in class.
