Course Description

Course Syllabus

AP Statistics prepares students to demonstrate the knowledge and skills acquired in a college level introductory statistics course. Through use of technology and topical investigations, students will develop skills to collect, analyze, and draw conclusions from data. Goals for the course also include developing skills in selecting statistical methods, data analysis, finding probability, using simulation, and written statistical argumentation.

Ultimately, students will prepare to take the AP Statistics exam so the course objectives align with College Board AP Statistics standards:

  • Selecting statistical methods: Select methods for collecting and/or analyzing data for statistical inference
  • Data analysis: Describe patterns, trends, associations, and relationships in data
  • Using probability and simulation: Explore random phenomena
  • Statistical argumentation: Develop an explanation or justify a conclusion using evidence from data, definitions, or statistical inference.

Course Structure

Students will be expected to view instructional videos, practice using concepts in homework assignments, complete projects designed to deepen understanding, and demonstrate that understanding for exams. There will be numerous opportunities to practice solving problems in the style of the AP Statistics exam.

Who should enroll?

Highly motivated 10th–12th graders who have completed Algebra 2. The successful student will be the one who is able to reason quantitatively and has a solid foundation of mathematical understanding up through second-year algebra.

Prerequisites

Students must successfully complete high school mathematics up through Algebra 2 before taking this course.

Technology Requirements

  • Calculator – TI-83 or TI-84 (any version)
  • Scanner or smart phone (for uploading handwritten work)
  • High speed, broadband Internet
  • Sound card and microphone (for live sessions)
  • Streaming video capabilities to watch recorded lectures

Evaluation and Feedback

As I expect timely submission of all assignments from students, I will return feedback on the assignments the same way, generally grading them in less than 5 days of the due date. Course grades will include evaluation from homework, quizzes, tests, and projects. Homework will be graded, however, I believe it should primarily be a vehicle to practice until mastery. With that in mind, homework will be revisable until the student’s desired score is achieved.

Communication

Any communication between the student and myself will be conducted through Canvas platform’s announcements and messages. Parents are welcome to contact me at any time with concerns or questions. If necessary, I can also be reached by email communication. I will do my best to answer any communication from students and parents within a few hours of receiving it.

Required Texts

No text will be required because all instructional materials will be provided by the teacher. However, the following text is recommended for another informational resource:

  • Advanced High School Statistics. 3rd edition. by David Diez, Mine Cetinkaya-Rundel, and Leah Dorazio. OpenIntro, Inc. ISBN13: 978-1943450152

Instructor Bio

Michele Diggins

My Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from Liberty University shows that I know a little about mathematics. And my Masters of Education degree from American College of Education shows that I have learned something of education theory. However, my passion for learning and for helping others learn is what really drives my desire to teach mathematics.

I began by tutoring my peers in the math lab at college. Eventually, I taught my own children from preschool through high school at home. Now, I enjoy sharing mathematics with students from many different backgrounds. Although math presents beautiful puzzles and amazing connections to all of creation, I also enjoy studying for my own benefit (especially in God’s Word), creating crafty projects, tending my chickens, and spending time with family.
