2015 World Cup Cricket


The Cricket World Cup is being played now in Australia and New Zealand.  This is a complex game that seems to be played with enthusiasm and humor.  In this activity students learn about the game; watch a couple of videos on how it is played; calculate the number of matches that must be played; try to reason how to count the matches in a more abstract manner; and decide whether the unusual organization of the matches seems fair.  Tons of good math while learning more about this worldwide game!
