Volumes continues!  Join Distinguished Visiting Professor and author Tim Chartier for an online discussion of his Get in the Game: An Interactive Introduction to Sports Analytics.

In 2013, NBA point guard Steph Curry wowed crowds when he sunk 11 out of 13 three-pointers for a game total of 54 points — only seven other players, including Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, had scored more in a game at Madison Square Garden.  Four years later, the University of Connecticut women’s basketball team won its hundredth straight game, defeating South Carolina 66–55.  And in 2010, one forecaster — an octopus named Paul — correctly predicted the outcome of all of Germany’s matches in the FIFA World Cup.  These are surprising events — but are they truly improbable?  In Get in the Game, mathematician and sports analytics expert Tim Chartier helps us answer that question — condensing complex mathematics down to coin tosses and dice throws to give readers both an introduction to statistics and a new way to enjoy sporting events.

This is an online-only event; all registrants will be participating remotely.  Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at videos.momath.org.
