Use the scientific method to design and test a bracket for the March Madness tournament. This is a fun activity that reinforces basic science principles using college basketball. Step-by-step directions walk students through each step in the scientific method and ask guiding questions at each stage. First, students will research the science of "bracketology" using links provided. Then, students will create a hypothesis to predict the outcome of any given game in the tournament. Students will fill out a bracket to test their hypothesis. Finally, students will analyze the results of their bracket experiment and draw conclusions after the tournament ends.
