BFW Self-Guided Course Tours are designed with your schedule in mind - they're on-demand, self-paced, and provide you with everything you need to know to get started using BFW materials successfully in your classroom.

Each course contains short videos that review the AP® Exam (where applicable), the student edition, and teacher resources. The videos are brief, so they're easy to watch in-between classes, during prep, or whenever you need a refresher on your textbook program.

Did Cam Newton choke in the Super Bowl? Can a swimsuit make you faster? Who should I draft for my fantasy baseball team?

Offering a unique and powerful way to introduce the principles of statistical reasoning, Statistical Reasoning in Sports 2e make statistics exciting with high-interest sports (and life) examples that show how statistics is a part of everyday life.

Statistical Reasoning in Sports 2e examines fascinating questions about sports and life by investigating the underlying statistical questions and creating a fun atmosphere in the classroom in which students analyze data, perform simulations, and draw conclusions to develop an understanding of statistics.

FEATURES

Examples 
Each chapter begins with a question that sets the stage for the statistical concepts that are developed in the chapter. Short examples integrated in each chapter show students how to approach each situation and what a complete solution to the problem looks like.

 

Tech corners
Focusing on both applets and the TI-84, Tech Corners give step-by-step instructions to performing simulations and calculations.

 

Exercises
Now at the end of each section, exercises can be assigned in class or as homework. Certain exercises refer back to examples in the section that can be used as a model for answers. Chapter review exercises hit each learning target for extra practice before a test.

 

Callout boxes
Throughout the chapters, these callouts define sports terms, explain key concepts and review concepts introduced in previous chapters.

 

Think About It
These boxes in each chapter dig a little deeper into a statistical concept with applications in sports.

 

STATS 101
These boxes introduce students to the vocabulary and methods that might be used in a more traditional statistics class.

 

Chapter Summary
A simple yet comprehensive summary of concepts for each chapter in an outline format, followed by "What Did You Learn?" tables that provide learning targets and exact examples and exercises that address each learning target.

Investigative Projects
Mini-projects that give step-by-step instructions for students to conduct a statistical investigation of their favorite athlete or team.

 

 

NEW TO THIS EDITION

 

New! Clear sections within each chapter

Each chapter is broken down into 3-5 sections that make it easier to pace the content over a semester or year. Exercises are now at the end of each section (in addition to chapter review exercises) for more focused practice.

 

New! Other Applications (It's not just sports) sections

These sections provide even more examples and show how statistical concepts can be taken from a sports context and used in other real-life situations. Do students prefer name-brand cookies? Do high school boys prefer different superpowers than high school girls? Questions like these are explored in these sections using the ideas explained in earlier sections. Each of these sections has its own set of exercises that can be assigned in class or as homework.

Updated! Examples and exercises

The examples and exercises include more current data, introducing more popular athletes such as Steph Curry, Simone Biles, Katie Ledecky, and Rickie Fowler.
