When one pictures the group who bested over 100 sports experts to win the 2016 Bracket Matrix--an online March Madness bracket competition--a classroom full of small-town high school students might not be the first image that comes to mind. It certainly wasn't what social studies teacher Brian Tonsoni expected when started Delphi Bracketology--a high school club that uses data science to predict which teams the NCAA will select for the Division I Men's Basketball Tournament. But what began as an informal gathering of sports fans soon grew into a collection of champions. In this short film, meet some of the members of this remarkable team, and learn how Tonsoni's informal, project-based approach to learning helped these young bracketologists acquire the kinds of key skills--data science, public speaking, and more--that every teacher hopes to instill in their students.
Meet the members of Delphi Bracketology--a high school club that uses data science to generate highly-accurate March Madness brackets. In this short film, see how these young sports fans went from amateurs to formidable bracketologists--gaining some key skills along the way.
