Injuries On and Off the Field Module

Sports injuries are often in the headlines, along with stories of students, parents and teachers wondering how to make middle school and high school sports safer. What kinds of injuries happen in and out of the sports arena? Are sports injuries more frequent? How do they compare to injuries from off-field activities?

In this module, Data Clubs participants explore datasets about all kinds of injuries serious enough to require medical care and dig into a dataset about injuries that relate to sports. They also go on a data hunt for different kinds of sports equipment. Throughout the module, participants use an online data tool called CODAP to ask questions, investigate patterns, and make data visualizations.
