AP Statistics

Link to AP Statistics webpage

This is a full-year course equivalent to one semester of college statistics.  Students learn about four broad conceptual themes: using graphical and numerical techniques to study patterns of data, planning a method of data collection, applying the rules of probability, and making statistical inferences to justify conclusions about large populations.  Students are expected to think critically about real-world data and explain their work in written form.  A strong emphasis is placed on precise writing and communication.  A student may receive undergraduate college credit for one semester of statistics through high performance on the Advanced Placement Statistics exam.  A TI-83/84 Plus or TI-Inspire graphing calculator is required.
