Course Syllabus

Course Description

Paul’s goals are to review important topics from each of the four major content areas in AP Statistics (Exploring Data, Collecting Data, Probability, and Statistical Inference), provide activities that help illustrate these topics, and provide instruction and opportunities to use various types of technology, including graphing calculators and computer software. Also, you will review the history of the AP Statistics program, discuss the creation of the AP Statistics exam, and review the scoring of the 2014 AP Statistics exam in great detail. Finally, you will discuss how to start an AP Statistics program, how to select materials for use in class, how to recruit students, how to assess students, how to prepare students for the AP exam, and of course, anything else that participants want to know!
