NUMB3RS Activity: The Pythagorean Expectation

Young scholars apply and manipulate a formula for winning percentage. They solve for the individual variables given baseball statistics from the 2006 season. After becoming familiar with the formula, students analyze and manipulate the equation. An extension activity offers the opportunity to explore alternate values for the exponent. A spreadsheet makes the cumbersome computations in the extension much easier.
