This Microsoft Word document contains an overview page and all handouts/worksheets my March Madness Statistics Unit. It uses some data from the 2013 men's basketball season, but can be altered for future seasons. Each lesson is specifically tied to each round of the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament.
Students will be able to calculate mean, median, mode, standard deviation, and quartiles. They will also be able to create stem and leaf plots, box and whiskers plots, frequency tables, histograms, and scatter plots. Also included is some basic probability.
I use the National Championship part as an assessment at the end of the unit.
The page numbers referenced on the overview page come from McDougal Littell's 2001 Algebra I textbook.
Also, the due dates for each part may seem unusual, but I was working around Spring Break in 2013.
