ABSTRACT

Many players and fans of basketball believe in the “hot hand” phenomenon, yet for years there has been little statistical evidence that such a phenomenon exists (hence the “hot hand fallacy”). However, recent research of Miller and Sanjurjo suggests that previous analyses of the hot hand have been subject to a bias, and after correcting for this bias, there is in fact evidence that the hot hand is real. Miller and Sanjurjo’s analyses are based on permutation tests. In this work, we discuss the ideas behind the permutation test procedure, illustrate an online Shiny app we developed for conducting the test, and present related simulation-based inference activities for introductory statistics courses. Our examples are based on data from the NBA Three Point Contest, in which we do find evidence of an average hot hand effect. Furthermore, we discuss additional topics concerning the bias in previous hot hand studies which can be introduced in courses with a stronger emphasis on probability or mathematical statistics. In particular, we discuss a simple coin flipping problem with a surprising solution which has been the subject of much recent media coverage and debate.

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
