This is a two-three week project that involves the students in the NCAA March Madness Basketball Tournament. Allow the students to choose or pick at random a school that is participating in the tournament. There is a math section and a written essay that accompanies this project.
The math portion involves measurement (perimeter, area, circumference and area of circles, percentage problems, and statistics).
The essay involves research pertinent information about your college or university. The students really enjoy this activity - even the girls!
