The Sweet Sixteen to the Final Four .... Augmented Basketballthe AR Basketball trigger, and Daqri 4D studio we developed an augmented basketball tournament.
The goal of the tournament was to apply what they had learned about ratios and percentages. To collect their data students entered how many shots they made out of 25 onto a Google Form. To access the Google Form students had to scan the augmented trigger for their class class and select Hoop it Up. To view the class's tournament bracket students scanned the same augmented trigger and selected the basketballs. Below is one of the augmented triggers. There was a augmented trigger for each class.
After students collected the data for their tournament they had to apply what they learned about ratios and percentages. For example the percentage of shots made per person and overall, and the ratio of shots made versus shots missed.
Example Math Problems:
- Write a part to part ratio based on your shooting results. Explain the meaning of your ratio.
- Write a part to whole ratio based on your shooting results. Explain the meaning of your ratio.
- Write three equivalent ratios based on your part to part ratio.
- Write three equivalent ratios based on your part to whole ratio.
- Based on your results for make and misses, complete the table below to see how many baskets you SHOULD make or miss if you earned a 2nd round of shooting. What about a 3rd round? 4th and so on...
- A college basketball player last season shot 32/56 at the free throw line during the NCAA Tournament. Based on your shooting results, do you have a better shooting percentage than this player? Explain or show your work.
- If you were to shoot 72 baskets, based on your ratio, how many would you expect to make? Explain or show your work.
- How many would you expect to miss? Explain or show your work.
- Write a part to part ratio based on your amount made and missed for 72 shots.
