First, check out these super fun WebQuests

  • March Madness Webquest: In this WebQuest, students will look at many different areas of math found in the NCAA basketball tournament. Students will use the NCAA bracket to look at all the teams participating in the tournament. The world of math will come alive as students find fractions, decimals, and percents; probability statistics; make predictions, and look for patterns. By the end of this WebQuest, students will be able to relate a variety of math facts to the NCAA tournament and explain the importance of Mathematics in basketball.
  • Interdisciplinary Web Quest for 8th Grade: As officials of the athletic department for your school you are responsible for making the plans for your team to attend the tournament. Travel plans will need to be made, statistics will need to be gathered, possible opponents need to be studied, and a program page will need to be created.
