Product Description
Using the free throw statistics from the 2012-2013 seasons, I created a chart of the averages from the WNBA and NBA. As a group students will have a free throw session and record their number of attempts and successful free throws. I will give my students 10 to 20 minutes to complete their free throws. I would suggest not to have the students all complete the same number of free throws since it will make it extremely easy to compare the fraction of successful free throws to the number of attempts. Students will also answer the following questions using the information from the tables:

What should the percentage of players add up to? Do the percentages add up to this number? If not, why do you think this occurred? (the percentage for the WNBA does not add up to 100 because of round off error)

Why do you think the women in the WNBA have a higher free throw average in general than the men in the NBA? (answers will vary, but could include women tend to practice free throws more, women have less pressure from a smaller crowd, women have a slightly smaller basketball, mindset, ect)
