AP® Statistics

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Topics are covered under four broad themes: Exploring Data (observing patterns and departures from patterns), Sampling and Experimentation (deciding what and how to measure), Anticipating Patterns (producing models using probability theory and simulation), and Statistical Inference (confirming models). Students use technology, investigations, problem-solving and writing as they build conceptual understanding. The content of this course follows the AP® syllabus and is equivalent to a one-semester, introductory, non-calculus-based college course in statistics. (Full year, 1 credit)
