16 July 2019
Learning math whilst playing basketball? Shoot and make it count.
Last week, sixth-grader students from Fuchu elementary school no. 10 in Tokyo had the opportunity to enhance their math skills whilst perfecting their shots in a series of basketball drills.
This fun learning activity is part of "Yoi Don!" ("Get Set"), a nationwide educational programme that aims to help students enjoy studying mathematics through interaction with Japanese athletes and sporting bodies. Tokyo 2020 has created a math textbook to engage students to actively participate in educational initiatives linked to the Games.
