Compare frequencies of goals scored per team per match and resulting scorelines.



This activity asks students to examine data and make predictions based on what they observe. Data for the English and Scottish Premier Leagues are provided in two separate TI-Nspire documents. In each case there are sets of data from two successive football seasons. The data are presented in a table and as a bar or pie chart.

There is an extension activity that allows students to generate their own data for goals and scorelines using a short program called shoot.
