Grades: 10, 11, 12

Students analyze data with calculators and computers, conduct classroom experiments, and perform simulations involving probabilistic concepts. Moreover, these students would not necessarily be enchanted by a traditional mathematics course. The AP Statistics course not only accommodates students with a wide variety of interests, it also serves those with a relatively wide range of math proficiency. Because the science, art, and practice of statistics differ significantly from other fields of mathematics, it is not surprising that this discipline is also taught differently. The purpose of AP Statistics is to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Four broad conceptual themes are exploring data, planning a study, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference. Students are expected to take the AP exam and those who successfully complete the course and examination may receive credit, advanced placement, or both for a one-semester introductory college statistics course.
