This course introduces students to the concepts and tools used to collect, organize, analyze, and draw conclusions from data. Students receive instruction in each of the following competencies: Exploring Data, Sampling and Experimentation, Anticipating Patterns, and Statistical Inference. Each student will be expected to learn how to articulate methodology, data description, and conclusions and to provide constructive comments to classmates. Students will develop knowledge through experiential activities that challenge students to design, administer, and tabulate 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 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.
