Statistics P
Students extend their work in statistics and probability by applying statistics ideas to realworld situations. They link classroom mathematics and statistics to everyday life, work, and decisionmaking, by applying these standards in modeling situations. They choose and use appropriate mathematics and statistics to analyze empirical situations, to understand them better, and to improve decisions.
Students in Statistics and Probability take their understanding of probability further by studying expected values, interpreting them as longterm relative means of a random variable. They use this understanding to make decisions about both probability games and reallife examples using empirical probabilities.
With depth over breadth in mind, the course offers the opportunity to delve deeper into those repeated Statistics and Probability standards while addressing new ones.
Students will develop a strong grasp of the Mathematical Practices:
1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
4. Model with mathematics.
5. Use appropriate tools strategically.
6. Attend to precision.
7. Look for and make use of structure.
8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
The Standards for Mathematical Practice complement the content standards so that students increasingly engage with the subject matter as they grow in mathematical maturity and expertise throughout the high school years.

AP Statistics
This course is the high school equivalent of a onesemester, introductory college statistics course. The purpose of this course is to help students develop strategies for collecting, organizing, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students design, administer, and tabulate results from surveys and experiments. Probability and simulations aid students in constructing models for chance behavior. Sampling distributions provide the logical structure for confidence intervals and hypothesis tests.
Students use a TI83/84 graphing calculator, Fathom, and Minitab statistical software, and Webbased java applets to investigate statistical concepts. To develop effective statistical communication skills, students are required to prepare frequent written and oral analyses of real data
Goals of AP Statistics Students who are enrolled in AP Statistics are expected to
 Describe patterns and departures from patterns
 Plan and conduct a study
 Explore random phenomena using probability and simulation
 Estimate population parameters and test hypotheses.
The course is divided into these four topics:
 Exploring Data: Describing patterns and departures from patterns
 Sampling and Experimentation: Planning and conducting a study
 Anticipating Patterns: Exploring random phenomena using probability and simulation
 Statistical Inference: Estimating population parameters and testing hypotheses.
