Overview

This program is specifically designed to show students how math is used in every day life from the exciting perspective of sports. 

Our one week academic program explores statistics in a way no classroom can. Last year, students began the week with a Boston Red Sox game, students keep their own scorecards, calculate on-base percentages, batting averages, and experience statistics in a real-world setting. While baseball, with its wealth of data, figures most prominently in our work, students are encouraged to bring their interest in other sports to the session.

 

Cost and Session Information

There are two sessions of this one-week program. Sports Statistics will run from June 22-26 and July 27-31.

'I liked how the program was fun but at the same time I learned a lot about how to calculate some basic and complicated statistics. Nancy was very helpful when I needed help, but also challenged me to do my best. Also, I really liked the field trips.'

''The program was a good mix of on campus and off campus activities. The class portion of the week has been informative, interesting and overall exciting. The Red Sox game and TD Garden tour were both awesome and a good way to see the work we did in class being used in real life. The teacher has been nothing but helpful and is always accessible if I have a question.'
