About the Course
Algebra II and strong mathematical ability. No prior statistics course required.
No prior statistics knowledge or experience is necessary.
Students will explore how data interpretation and statistical reasoning can solve complicated, real-world problems. By learning to collect, analyze, and draw conclusions from data, students will develop skills relevant to the digital age and current workforce. The interactive course will challenge students to evaluate existing research and design studies of their own, using numerical and graphical techniques.
This course will prepare students for the end-of-course AP exam and is comparable to a first-semester, non-calculus college statistics course.
AP Statistics teaches students key concepts relevant to statistical research and analysis, including data collection and interpretation.
