The SC Education Oversight Committee is pleased to again partner with Coach Frank Martin, the Head Men’s Basketball Coach at the University of South Carolina and the University of SC Athletics Department to give SC students the opportunity to participate in “Martin’s Math Club.” The goal of the program is to get students and teachers excited about math!
Teachers are challenged to teach at least one of the Martin’s Math Club lessons, which incorporate math and basketball. The lessons were developed by a SC math educator and include extension activities as well as all the materials necessary to complete each lesson. There are three lessons available in each grade level, K-8. Teachers are free to use lessons from Season 1 or Season 2!
Teachers who incorporate one of the lessons in their teaching and students who receive a lesson qualify to win two tickets to a Gamecock home basketball game.
Schools with high levels of participation in the program will qualify to win one of two visits by Coach Martin after basketball season.
Thank you to the teachers and students who made Season 2 of Martin’s Math Club a huge success! The tickets for each of the home games have been mailed out. Please look for Season 3 in October 2018. Go Gamecocks!
