The physically active math lesson was joined by professional players from the B. League's Alvark Tokyo basketball team as well as Cue3, a humanoid robot made by one of the team's major sponsors, Toyota Motor Corp. The special class was part of Tokyo 2020 Math Drill, a learning program that incorporates 55 official sports from the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics into math classes to provide fun learning opportunities.
