Saturday, April 18, 2015: 9:30 AM-10:30 AM
106 (BCEC)


Lead Speaker:
Josh Tabor


Should we go for it on fourth down? Should a runner try to steal second base? In the Common Core, students are asked to use probability to make decisions. In this session, we will use sports contexts to illustrate how expected value and conditional probability calculations can be used to evaluate strategies in sports.
