Math Lesson: Fantasy Football

My latest contribution to the New York Times Learning Network is a Math Lesson designed around a simple Fantasy Football-style game.


In this lesson, students use data, statistics, and a novel matchup metric to evaluate players and choose their teams.

As the results come in every week, students can refine their strategies and try to make more accurate projections!
