PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fill out a bracket, watch the tournament unfold and then mathematically analyze how you did! This activity is flexible enough to be used for a variety of levels. I have used all 6 pages for an AP Statistics class, and have used pages 1 through 5 for an Algebra or Algebra 2 class. You could even use it in lower levels as long as you are covering percents, and basic stats like mean, median, mode and graphing. The document is editable so you can adjust/delete to tailor to the level of statistics your students know.

This activity asks students to use teams from their own bracket as well as historical data to analyze from the following mathematical angles:
- Win percentages
- Relative frequency distributions
- Construct appropriate graphs
- Measures of center and spread
- Describing a distribution - center, shape, spread, outliers
- Box plot
- Scatter plot
- Strength, form, direction
- Least squares regression line
- Residuals and residual plots
