Statistics can be an intimidating course.  But, this statistics program is not like any statistics class that you will take in school. This program is specifically designed to show students how math is used in every day life from the exciting perspective of sports. 

Which teams are most likely to play in next year’s Super Bowl?  How has the three-point shot changed basketball?  Who is baseball’s most “clutch” hitter?  How do you rank a team’s all-time best players?

This class combines the study of statistics with the fun of sports.  Students will learn about fundamental statistical measures and will also extend their knowledge of secondary math through the use of graphing calculators.  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.

This one-week summer program is designed for teens interested in math & computer science.

Student Comments from Summer 2023

‘I liked how in sports statistics we were able to use math to determine how good teams and players were compared to others. Also, I loved going to the Red Sox game and the Sports Museum at TD Garden.’

‘In our program we learned how to calculate sports stats and use them in graphs, we were also able to compare them to other. Our teacher is a big Red Sox fan and loved using statistics. I liked how we stayed together and would help each other out.

‘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.’

‘I liked how the teacher was very educated about sports and math in sports. I also liked going to the Red Sox game. It was fun to make your own stat too.’
