A Math Lesson from an NBA Legend

Dan Meyer shared this video earlier on Twitter and I just have to pass it along. NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal is now a host on TNT's Inside the NBA show. Last night he had a little trouble calculating percentages. I used Embed Plus to queue-up the video to the section in which he struggles with the calculation.

Applications for Education
Queue-up the video and show it to your students. Stop it before the correct answer is explained to Shaq and ask your students why Charles Barkley is laughing at Shaq's comment.
