Course Goals and Objectives
Tendance
 The purpose of this course in statistics is to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for
collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data.
 Students will be exposed to four broad concepts in statistics
 Exploring Data: Observing patterns and departures from patterns (descriptive statistics: graphical,
numerical, and curve fitting for prediction of bivariate data)
 Planning a Study: Deciding what and how to measure (Sampling Designs and Experimental Designs)
 Anticipating Patterns: Producing models using probability and simulation (Probability models
including Normal, Binomial, and Geometric distributions)
 Statistical Inference: (hypothesis testing, confidence intervals)
 Students are not only expected to carry out the mathematical analysis of data, but to communicate in
writing the meaning of that analysis.
Instructional Strategies
Tendance
 A variety of instructional strategies will be used in this course. They include, but are not limited to:
o Lecture
o Students Investigation (In-class Labs)
o Group Work
o Student Presentations
o Analyzing data using statistical software in the Mathematics Lab/StatsCrunch
Assessment
Tendance
 Ongoing student assessment in the AP Statistics classroom is essential to ensure student success. As a
guide for instruction and monitoring student progress, multiple methods are employed. Pre- and
formative assessments are used to determine both pacing and level of understanding. This is
accomplished using Kagan cooperative learning structures, paper and pencil warm-up questions, and
student presentation of homework problems. These types of assessments will allow the instructor to
make meaningful instructional decisions to ensure all students have the opportunity for success.
 Student progress for determining grades is measured using both unit tests and performance
assessments. While unit tests concentrate mainly on the current unit, questions from previous units
are included. Performance assessments for each unit allow students the opportunity to examine a topic
in greater detail and use the topic in a “case study” type situation. Communication is an essential piece
of the performance assessments. These assignments provide students with an opportunity to use their
statistical knowledge in a meaningful way. Long term projects give students the opportunity to draw
connections between all aspects of the statistical process, including design, analysis and conclusions.
Both written and oral communication of these projects is expected. In all of these methods of
assessment students are required to use the language of statistics to communicate about the methods
utilized, the analysis, and the results.
 Students will have an opportunity to display mastery of the concepts in this course in several different
ways.
 Written homework, collected and graded for accuracy (homework will not be accepted
for any chapter after the test for that chapter is given)
 Daily warm-up exercises
 Chapter Tests
 Cumulative Final Exam (Worth two chapter exams)
 Final Project (Students will work alone or with a partner to choose a topic of interest,
formulate a research question, gather the data, analyze the data, and present the
research in a classroom presentation and a written report.
 Letter grades are based on an honors scale and are as follows:
 93% - 100%
A
 86% - 92%
B
 77% - 85%
C
 70% - 76%
D
 Below 70%
