APstats

Advance Placement Statistics is an elective course in which students develop major theories and techniques for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students will be exposed to four broad conceptual themes: exploring data, designing a study, anticipating patterns in advance, and statistical inference. Solving real-life problems that require the use of statistical inference and a combination of statistical techniques will be emphasized. Technology will be used to develop understanding and work on large datasets. Students will present, defend, and critique statistical arguments.

Students enrolled in this course are expected to take the CollegeBoard AP Statistics examination in the Spring. Student taking this course are required to have a TI-84+ or higher graphing calculator...preferably a
TI-nspire calculator (some loaners may be available.)
