Product Description
Aligned to AP Statistics curriculum! Engage your students with this mini project that asks them to apply binomial and geometric probability theory to football! Simply fill in each year the pass completion rate and a picture of a quarterbacks, and you are good to go! The version uploaded is from 2017, featuring Matt Ryan. I am selling a Word doc so you can edit for this year - and it doesn't even have to be football! Can adjust to work for basketball, tennis, even baseball. Also includes answer key with work shown!
I assign this each year for homework over the "Big Game" weekend (not naming it for copyright issues, but you know what game I mean). My kids love to discuss their findings on Monday.
My favorite part about this project is that when we review probability even months later, kids will often remember the difference between binomial and geometric probability in the context of this project. It creates a memorable application of these tricky concepts that really helps make them stick!
