Sports Analytics for Students

Who would have thought strike zones and statistics make the perfect pair? Inspired by a sports analytics conference, University School of Nashville educator Joel Bezaire is making his case for connections between math and sports organizations with his aptly titled curriculum "Sports Analytics For Students." Math educators in search of a fun way to wrap-up the school year and caregivers looking for ways to keep their teenagers academically engaged during the summer months will find this nearly 100-page packet provides plenty of options to do just that. The packet is freely downloadable in PDF form and contains lesson plans, worksheets, and activities, which are categorized by topic into six chapters and four appendices. Many activities use specific sports teams as a launching point for a statistics lesson, and pop-culture references are sprinkled throughout, adding to the materials' engaging tone. The curriculum was created in 2018 and is geared towards middle and high school students. Though designed as a week-long "summer camp," Bezaire notes that the materials can easily be converted into individual lesson plans. Readers who enjoy this work may also want to check out the rest of Bezaire's blog dedicated to pre-algebra resources.
