 Driving questionHow can we find value where nobody else can see it?Learning objectives, requirement tasks, and mastery assessmentsUse linear regression to describe patterns linking two quantitative variables.Mastery quiz: Identify association and correlation in a scatterplot.Use StatKey to calculate the line of best fit and correlationExplain the slope and y-intercept of a line with proper unitsFind and explain r2Understand the effect of outliers and influential points on the regression linePredict new values using interpolation and extrapolation with the regression line.  Understand each of their limitations.Mastery free-response questions:The purpose of intercepts in regressionMultiple regressionNon-linear transformationsUse inference with a best-fit line to quantify confidence.Mastery quiz: Find a confidence interval of the slopeDescribe in a sentenceFind the p-value for a test that the slope in not zeroIn a team, use multiple regression and spreadsheets to estimate Ultimate Frisbee player value and draft a winning team.Task:Watch the movie MoneyballLearn the game Ultimate Frisbee by playing and observingGain insight into player valuation from playingRun multiple regression on multiple statistics, and create your own statsRank players Mastery reflection questions:Discuss how you used your intuition and understanding of the game and how you also used pure statistical analysis to best identify talent.Talk about how you approached spreadsheets with over 50,000 cells in a way that left you informed for the draft.  You can draw on the days we played Ultimate, watched Moneyball, and worked as teams on the formula/graphs.Reference the article discussion (Billion Dollar Beane) to explain why this process is so incredibly valuable in any industry where you are searching for talent.
