M15359: Intro to Sports Analytics in Splash 2022 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2022)

This course will introduce some topics in statistics and machine learning that are commonly used to help interpret sports datasets. We will primarily focus on football, and as a group, we will go through a series of activities to understand how an algorithm can be designed to help a coach make fourth down decisions (i.e. punt, kick, or go for it).
