ADVANCED PLACEMENT STATISTICS APSTAT
The purpose of this Advanced Placement course in statistics is to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students are exposed to the four broad conceptual themes which follow: 1) Exploring data – observing patterns and departures from patterns; 2) Planning a study – deciding what and how to measure; 3) Anticipate patterns – producing models using probability and simulation; and 4) Statistical inference – confirming models. After completing the course, students will take the College Board AP exam.
