Product Description
A good excuse to talk tournament!! This activity asks probability and conditional probability ("and"/"or") questions with a March Madness theme! It assumes that all teams are put into a hat - so they have even probabilities. You may want to discuss how the tournament is set up and define terms like "seed", "upset" and "conference" - or let students do some quick research to learn more. On occasion I've streamed the tournament games, and supplemented with this lesson so we're 'on task' academically.

If you're looking for questions that use true probabilities based on historical data, see my Math March Madness - Historical Data Tournament Probabilities assignment in my store!

This can be used independently or check out these other items in my store for a comprehensive March Madness Project!
