“Statistics, Sports and School,” Part 3: beginning research

I’ve started my research for my “Statistics, Sports, and School”  course.  I’ve talked about it here  and here in the past.   Here’s a synopsis of my research so far:   

  • I have too many books/resources  to read about  on mathematics/sports,  statistics/sports designing studies,  etc…
  • I’m  “lunching”  and “networking” with as many people as possible who could be potential resources, advisors, “special guests,”  etc . I want to get  Nate Silver and Michael Lewis on my “potential speakers / mentors”  list.  … I wonder if this is possible!
  • Learning how to use R via Coursera courses and other resources.

I’d love to get involved with some other math/ statistics teachers who currently run / do Fantasy Baseball.    I want to see how feasible it would be to design/  run a “mini session”  of this in the course.  Any takers?  Let me know!

  2. Thanks Tim! Who, by the way, is the “we?” I’d love to get the word out more about this.
