June 5‐8
This course will focus on effective strategies for helping students master the essential concepts and methods of AP Statistics. We will examine resources for classroom instruction, assessment, technology, projects, and AP exam preparation. In addition, we will discuss issues related to planning and administering the course, such as student selection, pacing, and the AP Audit.

This course will deepen understanding of AP Statistics in a collaborative environment. Big ideas include exploring and visualizing one and two variable data, sampling and experimentation, probability, random variables, sampling distributions, and statistical inference via confidence intervals and significance tests. Simulation is used throughout to increase understanding. We will explore and engage the content through activities that can be implemented immediately in the classroom. Learning is supported with an introduction to graphing calculators. Old AP exam questions will be unpacked with a focus on the rubrics used to grade the questions. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a graphing calculator.
