AP Statistics will introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students will prepare to take the AP Statistics test. This course will be different than any other mathematics course you have completed. Learning statistics does involve some formulas and procedures, but it is also reading and writing intensive. Most importantly, this course requires the use of thinking and common sense.
A graphing calculator is required. The TI84 will be used for demonstration.
Please carefully read the Syllabus / Expectations for details on how this course will operate
