It’s easier to do one thing at a time than two things. Sometimes grown-ups get carried away doing lots of things at once. It’s called multitasking, and it usually ends with them dropping their phone into a pot of tomato sauce (don’t ask). Well, fortunately some grown-ups CAN do two things at once - and do it quickly, too! This guy named Dylan Sorensen set the world record for fastest running while dribbling a basketball. He ran 1 mile in just 4 minutes and 37 seconds while bouncing the ball to beat the old record. This is the 3rd time a new record has been set in the past year...do you think you could bounce around the track faster?
Wee ones: What shape is a basketball?
Little kids: If Dylan dribbled the basketball switching between his hands in this pattern: right, right, right, left, then right again to start again... which hand did he use for the 6th dribble? Bonus: What hand did he use for the 16th dribble? Can you figure it out without counting out?
Big kids: The world record for running 1 mile without a basketball is 3 minutes 43 seconds. How much less time is that than this record of 4 minutes 37 seconds? Bonus: If Dylan ran all 4 laps in the exact same amount of time, how long did each lap take? (Round to the nearest whole second.)

We inspire kids to love math
so they embrace and excel at it.
