    Overview

    This course will give students grades 6-8 a behind the scenes look at how data helps drive some of the greatest success stories in sports. We will explore how the data process (collection, organization, analyzation, and visualization) can help athletes maximize their performance and teams win more games. 

    Have you ever wondered how the seemingly two unrelated fields of math and sports intertwine? Or how simple data analyses can help lead underdogs to win the World Series or a National Championship? Sports analytics is a new and exciting field in the world of athletics.

    Through collecting our own data and that of our favorite athletes and teams, we will learn how to make better-informed decisions to give an edge to athletic performance. This class will be tailored to those who are curious-minded, passionate, and love challenging themselves in fun ways.
