“MONEYBALL” METHOD

You will learn the “Moneyball” method which focuses on using data to make deep discoveries that are not obvious and certainly go against conventional wisdom. When it comes to sports, you will become a data-driven decision maker. As you learn statistical reasoning as well as key data analysis skills, you will be primed to be a leader in an increasingly data-driven economy.

Moneyball covers some of statistics 101 courses as well as many advanced level statistics course topics. This program also teaches you how to apply the statistical techniques you learn in AP Statistics. This program is ideal for students with a strong background in math and a love of sports. An interest in computer programming is recommended but no specific background is necessary.
