Given that many students play sports themselves or follow various sports as a hobby, providing articles on topics in sports encourages student interest in reading. Students often do not encounter enough material that is of interest to them, composed with writing geared for their skill level. In addition, many sports figures serve as role models to students. Muhammad Ali is an excellent example of a role model, and we have a biography about him that explains why. This week we also look at the NBA and the NFL—or professional basketball and American football, respectively. Lastly, we focus on math as it relates to the Indy 500, which has the largest audience for a single-day sporting event in the world. At Maps101, we provide weekly articles to enhance student engagement by featuring articles of interest to them. Without further delay, let’s wave the green flag and get going!
