Give kids this: Hank Aaron - Home Runs by Pitcher
Let all hell break loose.
I've become quite a fan of "unstructured time" as of late, and I think this is perfect for an AP Statistics class. I can see my baseball fans in class leaping at this opportunity to explore some baseball stats. Whatever they wish to investigate, they are free to do so. For the non-baseball fans, it may be just an opportunity to learn something about baseball. I owe them some data on what they're interested in. I look forward to hearing what a student that knows very little about baseball has to say.
1. Comparison of Barry Bonds(or any other great home run hitter) to Hank Aaron.
2. Are pitchers today better (as a whole) than the ones Hank Aaron faced? (this comes from listening to Colin Cowherd say that Babe Ruth hit his home runs against guys who drove a milk truck in the off-season)
3. Just how biased is this website?
Let them come up with how they're going to do any of the above.
