Baseball, Statistics, and the Role of Chance in the Game: A Summer Short Course

The Ohio Section of the MAA is sponsoring a summer short course entitled “Baseball, Statistics, and the Role of Chance in the Game,” to be held on June 7-9, 2006 at Mount Union College, in Alliance, Ohio. Aimed both at mathematicians and statisticians who are baseball fans and at those interested in using baseball applications to teach probability and statistics, the course will be taught by James Albert, professor of Mathematics and Statistics at Bowling Green State University, author of Teaching Statistics Using Baseball, and coauthor of Curve Ball: Baseball, Statistics, and the Role of Chance in the Game. Topics will include exploring baseball data, searching for the ultimate batting statistics, looking for clutch ability, modeling run production with Markov Chains, and comparing great players from different eras.
