The Game of Statistics
Math in Action
On Tuesday, 10/8/19 several math department classes participated in the first ever math department basketball free throw activity getting students got off the bench and into the game called Statistics!!! Shots were taken by over 80 students, results were tallied, and the game went into overtime with small group discussions and analysis. The purpose of this activity was to allow each student an opportunity to create real life data to use in their classes. Students have been studying statistics during the first quarter of the school year and the results are being used to practice using data in different statistical analysis activities. This activity was a great success and allowed students to see math in action!
