At one time, basketball was extremely boring. Literally, almost no one cared. What changed basketball to the fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat, nail-biting spectacle it is today? The 24-second shot clock. My favorite podcast, 99% Invisible, tells the story behind this accomplishment in the episode aptly titled, Game Changer.
Guess what? All it took was some simple math.
Ever since listening to the episode, I’ve been interested in sharing it with students, thinking “how would I design (more importantly launch) a lesson to explore the math in Game Changer?”
How would you design (or launch) a lesson to explore the math in Game Changer?
