Play from the Sidelines: Sports Analytics
(of a nine-week minicourse)
Thursday, October 20 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)
Appropriate for ages 10 and up
Sports analytics has gathered tremendous momentum as one of the most dynamic fields in mathematics. Taking a deep dive into the numbers of sports can be game-changing or simply a fun exercise for fans. How do you get in the game with numbers? What questions can be explored? What actionable insights can be gleaned? From March Madness to national media broadcasts, analytics are becoming increasingly indispensable. Join Distinguished Visiting Professor Tim Chartier as we discuss outlooks that help with successful analytics, ponder a variety of related questions, and even have a chance to race Usain Bolt — at least under a mathematical model. Let’s learn how to get in the game — as sports analysts! The course will address multiple sports and many aspects of sports analytics. One week's session will not depend on the previous, nor will any session re-teach past material.
Tim Chartier is an applied mathematician, popular author, and professionally-trained mime from Davidson College who brings to MoMath his expertise in data analysis, computer science, sports analytics — and the performing arts!
