A discussion of:

X Games in Mathematics

Hosted by the author Tim Chartier

Sunday, March 5 at 5:00 pm ET


Sports analytics has gathered tremendous momentum as one of the most dynamic fields emerging today.  How do athletes use mathematics to train themselves to get better at what they do?  Tim Chartier, MoMath’s Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics and the author of X Games in Mathematics, details the ways that we can analyze the world of sports and athletics to gain insights that would otherwise be obscured.  He’ll also share many mathematical topics not involving sports and demonstrate how exploring sports analytics can help train you more broadly in mathematics.

All are welcome to attend the book club discussion.  For the fullest experience, participants are encouraged to read X Games in Mathematics in advance of the event.
