Statistics

This course will deepen understanding of AP Statistics in a collaborative environment. Big ideas include exploring and visualizing one and two variable data, sampling and experimentation, probability, random variables, sampling distributions, and statistical inference via confidence intervals and hypothesis tests. Simulation is used throughout to increase understanding. We will explore and engage the content through activities that can be implemented immediately in the classroom. Learning is supported with an introduction to graphing calculators and the software package R . Old AP exam questions will be unpacked with a focus on the rubrics used to grade the questions. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a graphing calculator and a laptop.
