Math in Basketball

I've created 3 posters for a bulletin board on using math in relation to basketball. One poster is on geometry, and the other two are on using math in the career fields of statistics and engineering. I'd like to create more posters on algebra, physics, construction, and electronics or software development. (For electronics/software, I'd like to find some information on the new gadgets or technology that is used to improve player fitness, muscle memory, etc)

Unfortunately, it takes longer to research content than to create the actual poster. So I'm hoping that someone has some content ideas around those subtopics.

You may view the created posters at this link.

I'd also appreciate feedback on the posters. I'm on the fence over whether the seam lines interfere with reading the text. Please respond if you have any improvement ideas.

Thank you very much.

​Hi--I'm sorry that it's taken me so long to reply. Thank you so much for the links and feedback. The Apple app is just the kind of thing I was hoping for.

​Great work! Your title caught my eye as I'm a big NBA fan. If you haven't seen this demo from the Apple iPhone event last year it could be of use for your tech poster https://www.geekwire.com/2018/sports-tech-apple-ev...

The seam lines aren't too distracting on your reversed text, but they do make the black intro text a little hard to read. They help sell the basketball theme though! Could possibly try lowering the opacity some to see if that helps?

For algebra you could maybe base something on player PER https://www.basketball-reference.com/about/per.htm...

And maybe physics around MJs hangtime? https://www.scienceabc.com/pure-sciences/secret-mi...

Hope this helps!
