“LeBron Asks” and result is educational fun with math

Sep 7, 2012, 2:12 PM EDT

This is really cool.

Well, The Kahn Academy was already very really cool. It’s the brainchild of Harvard/MIT big brain Salman Khan with the idea of trying to provide simple, understandable lessons on a wide range of topics then put them on YouTube for anyone in the world to watch.

Now, LeBron James has teamed up with Kahn and tried to teach some mathematical ideas using basketball as the example and theme. For example above, is LeBron more likely to make three free throws in a row or a three-point shot? Great way to teach math concepts and make them interesting. Check out the entire lineup.

Hat tip to Micah Hart and the All Ball blog at NBA.com.

    This guy is great and I’ve heard of him about a year ago. It’s a great way for kids to learn and is extremely simple to use, I recommend this for anyone wanting to learn or are struggling!
