Students receive instruction in each of the following competencies: exploring data, sampling and experimentation, anticipating patterns with probability and simulation, and statistical inference.

Students will develop knowledge through experiential activities that challenge them to design and administer studies as well as tabulate and analyze results from surveys and experiments. Students will 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 will apply a powerful skillset effectively in new and unanticipated situations, explore AP®-style free response questions and applications, take AP®-style assessments, and prepare for the AP® Statistics Exam in the spring.
