AP® Statistics helps students develop strategies to explore data by describing patterns and departures from those patterns, as well as anticipating patterns. Learning comes through planning, designing, and conducting studies through sampling and experimentation. Students use probability and simulation, estimate population parameters and test hypotheses through problem solving and application, and draw connections between all aspects of the statistical process: design, analysis, and conclusions. Students often work in small collaborative groups to explore problems and share ideas. Active participation- individual and group projects, peer review of student work, and discussion board conversations- helps students learn how to communicate methods, results, and interpretations effectively using the vocabulary of statistics and 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.
