The SC Education Oversight Committee is pleased to 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 Team.” The goal of the program is to get students and teachers excited about math!
Teachers are challenged to teach one of two standards-based lessons incorporating 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.
Teachers who incorporate one of the lessons in their teaching and students who receive a lesson qualify to win two tickets to one of four home basketball games.
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 all of the students and teachers who participated in the inaugural year of Martin’s Math Club! Unfortunately, all of the tickets available for this year’s contest have been distributed. The lessons are still available for use AND we hope that we are able to partner with Coach Frank Martin to offer this program again next season. Thank you again for helping make this a tremendous first year!
