March Madness Math at Mid City High School

Trey Canaday, Tavian Petersen Brown, Christian Hann, Austin Walsh, and Ira Euring, students in Miss Mastalio’s Sports Statistics class at Mid City High, analyzed the projected March Madness brackets (the tournament to determine the college basketball national champion). Students found 10 different statistics describing each team in the tournament, and then used these statistics to help them decide which team would win each game. They filled out bracket posters to display in order to see if their statistical predictions match up with what happens in the actual games! Students found it interesting to see how the statistics matched up with how good they personally thought certain teams were.
