PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Jump into the March Madness tournament to apply probability concepts to a real-world application. Great for your sports loving students. Students explore probability first by determining the probability that a team will win. Students, further, weight teams based on historical data and/or team statistics.

This set of activities is appropriate to use as an introduction to probability or as a culminating activity for a probability unit.

More than just the application of probability, this plan allows students to problem solve, work cooperatively and individually, play with pie graphs, explore percentages, and be creative.
