March Madness at CMS

China Middle School students in Mrs. Dugan’s seventh grade math classes participated in a March Madness Basketball Project. Using the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, students had to make different brackets – a GUT bracket, real statistical bracket, semi-real statistical bracket, and a fake statistical bracket. Throughout the project students investigated what March Madness NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament is, collected and analyzed statistical data related to March Madness, created a master spreadsheet of classroom data to be used to create brackets, created brackets and traced their success or failure during the competition (also compared to other classmates), and analyzed and reflected on how their brackets did during the competition as well as improvements that could have been made. In the end, the student with the most correct picks for the tournament was Dylan with 39 correctly picked games. Other top scores were: Isabella with 38 correct, Connor with 36 correct, and Ivyn with 35 correct. #WeAreRSU18
