AP® Statistics helps students develop strategies for collecting, organizing, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Each student is expected to learn how to articulate methodology, data description, and conclusions and to provide constructive comments on reports by classmates. Much of the knowledge learned in this course comes through experiential activities that challenge students to design, administer, and tabulate results from surveys and experiments. The students often work in small collaborative groups to explore problems and share ideas. Active participation, in the form of individual and group projects, peer review of student work, and discussion board conversations, are key to student success. Students may select the AP® or non-AP® track in this course. AP® students are expected to delve deeper into the topics, take AP®-style assessments, and prepare for the AP® exam in the spring.
