Inside Science Television spoke with Tim Chartier about how math can be used to predict the winners of March Mathness. They also provide additional resources for those who wish to learn more or teach this in their classrooms.
Tim notes in the interview that: “To do well in bracketology, you need to know how teams will do earlier. It’s often those teams that are very difficult to predict and those games that often our methods are picking up.”
He also reveals that, using data available at the time of the interview, his methods currently predict Kentucky will be the winner. Does that match up with your bracket?
