Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of how math and economic principles can be applied to sports.  They will practice basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and budgeting.  Some more complicated calculations can be done as well depending on learner age and understand (but not necessary).
I have been an educator in some of the top independent schools in the country.  I have taught history and economics.  I have also been a college, high school, and middle school coach of multiple sports (basketball, golf, and baseball).  I taught economics, entrepreneurship, and negotiation to juniors and seniors at the school where I was principal. 
Students will work on optional projects and through online simulations between sessions.  They also may watch games and youtube replays of players to evaluate performance.
Students should have a tablet or laptop for research and access to some programs like Excel or Google Sheets.  They should have internet access, and scratch paper with pen/pencil.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There are no grades, but students will be given feedback and guidance about their plans for teams.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
