This summer the Education Division will coordinate a number of fun and interactive learning experiences to take place in the month of July.
EOC: Season 2 of Martin's Math Club Focused on Gamecocks' Final Four Run
Attention SC Teachers:
The SC Education Oversight Committee (EOC) is pleased to announce Season 2 of "Martin's Math Club,"
a partnership with University of South Carolina Head Men's Basketball Coach Frank Martin and the University of South Carolina Athletics Department.
Martin, a former high school math educator, developed the project designed to help young people learn that math is fun and relevant in their daily lives.
The contest provides the opportunity for teachers and students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade to win two tickets to a University of SC Men's Basketball team home game.
With assistance from SC math educators, the EOC has published 27 standards-based lessons for K-8th grade that incorporate math and basketball. The added twist is that this season's lessons focus on the Gamecocks' historic run to the Final Four last season!
Each teacher that incorporates at least one of three available lessons in each grade level (from Season 1 or Season 2) into their teaching has the chance to win two tickets to a USC home basketball game and each student who receives a lesson will be eligible to win two tickets to a home basketball game. Teachers are limited to 60 tickets. There are tickets available for every home game in the upcoming season! Winners will be recognized at each game and may have the chance to meet Coach Martin. Teachers will be honored at two of the home games.
