AP Statistics Tue-Thu TBA
with STEM Instructor (M.S. or PhD)
The AP Statistics course introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data.
There are four themes evident in the content, skills, and assessment in the AP Statistics course:(1) Exploring Data, (2) Sampling & Experimentation, (3) Probability & Simulation, and (4) Statistical Inference. Students use technology, investigations, problem solving, and writing as they build conceptual understanding.
College Course Equivalent The AP Statistics course is equivalent to a one-semester, introductory, non-calculus-based college course in statistics.
Prerequisites The AP Statistics course is an excellent option for any secondary school student who has successfully completed a second-year course in algebra and who possesses sufficient mathematical maturity and quantitative reasoning ability. Because second-year algebra is the prerequisite course, AP Statistics is usually taken in either the junior or senior year. Decisions about whether to take AP Statistics and when to take it depend on a student’s plans:
- Students planning to take a science course in their senior year will benefit greatly from taking AP Statistics in their junior year.
- For students who would otherwise take no mathematics in their senior year, AP Statistics allows them to continue to develop their quantitative skills.
- Students who wish to leave open the option of taking calculus in college should include precalculus in their high school program and perhaps take AP Statistics concurrently with precalculus.
