This project is designed for middle school students to show them how math can be used in real-life. This project uses the NCAA tournament to review data analysis and probability skills, such as bar graphs, experimental probability, and measures of central tendency.
-Before starting this project, the current year's bracket must be out. This can be found on the NCAA website or by doing a simple search for "NCAA bracket." Students will need the bracket to choose their 4 teams and also for the bonus portion of the project.
