Discussion: Matrices and Vectors in the Real World

Pretend you are coaching a sports team—you pick the sport. What are some ways you would use matrices on the job?

Tell what type of sports team you are coaching and give at least three scenarios of how you could use matrix operations on the job. Be as specific as possible.

Then, read another “coach’s” set of scenarios. Choose one of them and make a spreadsheet for it. If you need more details about what the matrices should include, ask the coach, but you can make up the numbers that go into it. Use Ctrl + ` to display formulas before uploading your spreadsheet.

I would be the coach of a badminton team, and scenarios of how I could use the matrix operations on the job would be how many times a person on the team served compared to the amount of times they’ve received a serve, the amount of times theyve missed compared to the number of times theyve successfully returned a hit, and the number of times theyve scored vs the amount of times theyve missed and hit out of the court.

Scenario 1)

At the very end of the match, it was revealed that Samuel had served 7 times while Joshua had only served 4 times, but when it was regarding returning a serve, Joshua had received 10 and and Samuel only received 6.

Scenario 2) Samuel missed only 4 times while Joshua missed 5, but Samuel and Joshua both successfully returned hits 11 times each.

Scenario 3) Johnny scored 13 points and Samuel scored 12, but Johnny missed 7 times and Samuel missed 4.



        If one were a Buzkashi coach, there may be some instances where the individual could use matrices.  Firstly, scores from sports games can be plugged into a matrix, concerning points from different teams. For example, if in one season of Buzkashi, several teams are playing against one another, and one wishes to compare the numbers of each team’s points, this can be done with the use of a matrix. Also, one could use a matrix to find which teams do best at the game of Buzkashi, within a certain area and when. In this case, one could make a table, with the teams as rows, and the areas and times as columns. One could plug this in and discover which teams do best or worst, when and where. This could also be used, for discovering when the most fans attend games, and when they attend games the most.

Firstly, let us examine the points of the Buzkashi teams, a necessary element in solving the first example:

In the first game, team red wins 20 points, blue wins 13, and green wins 14. Yet in the second game, red scores 17, blue wins 15, and green wins 9. In the third game, red wins 18, blue wins 16, and green wins 12. In this case, one could organize a matrix by the number of the game as rows, and the teams as columns.

Now; concerning which teams do best, where and when: Team red scored 20 points in Tehran on day one, 17 points on the second day in Ankara, and 18 points on the third day in Bursa. Team blue scored 13 on the first day in Tehran, 15 points on the second day in Ankara, and on the third day, 16 points. Lastly, green wins 14 points in Tehran on the first day, 9 on the second in Ankara, and on the third day, green wins 12 points in Bursa.

Finally, my observers, we must consider when most fans attend the games, as this is a most valuable asset to any business, especially sports, as we must have revenue!

                In Tehran on day one, 1000 people attend the Buzkashi game, on the second day in Ankara, 1,503 people attend the game. Lastly, on the third day in Bursa, 1,304 spectators attend the game of Buzkashi. One could organize this, by using the days as rows, and cities as columns.

Thank you for reading about matrices and Buzkashi coaching!
