This sequence of two lessons students investigate streaks in statistical data. They develop tests for randomness in order to distinguish between random and non-random results and use their understanding of randomness to investigate the existence or otherwise of the 'hot streak' phenomenon in basketball. Each lesson is outlined in detail including curriculum links, discussion points, spreadsheets, internet resources and historical data. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Maths by Inquiry program.
