AP - Statistics
Completion of a summer assignment is required for this course. This course is designed to meet the growing need for knowledge of the statistical procedures necessary to analyze data from all disciplines.  Students are introduced to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and inferring from data.  The four broad conceptual themes include:  exploratory data, planning a study, anticipating patterns and statistical inference.  This course is designed for students who intend to study business, economics, social sciences and many other disciplines where data analysis is required.  It may be taken concurrently with Pre-Calculus or Calculus.  This course is scheduled in the math computer lab.  Students will utilize the TI-Nspire graphing calculator and FATHOM software extensively in this course.  A minimum grade of “A-” in college prep (CP) level classes or “B” in honors level classes is a good predictor for success in this course. It is expected that all students take the AP Statistics exam in May.
