Sports Analytics

In February of 2015 I had the privilege of attending the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference hosted by M.I.T. in Boston, MA.  There is a significant opportunity at hand; sports teams are quite literally hiring mathematicians off of the streets to help them run/organize an analytics department.

From that conference, I created a curriculum aimed at middle- and high-school math students to help engage them in the world of Sports Analytics.  Many students love sports, and engaging them in mathematics in this way is just too good an opportunity to pass up.

Download the curriculum here:  Sports Analytics for Students One Point Four 2018 

{I am making this available for free, but please do not alter the curriculum (other than for your own classroom use), email the .pdf to anyone, or re-post this .pdf on any other websites.  Please direct all links back to this page if you wish to share this curriculum.  Thank you, and please email me with any questions.}

Also, visit this collection of Sports Analytics Desmos activities that I’ve helped compile.
