AP® Statistics for New and Experienced Teachers
Workshop DescriptionThe goals for our 4 days together are to review important topics from each of the four major content areas in AP® Statistics (Exploring Data, Collecting Data, Probability, and Statistical Inference), provide activities that help illustrate these topics, and provide instruction and opportunities to use various types of technology, including grAP®hing calculators and computer software. In addition, we will review the history of the AP® Statistics program, discuss the creation of the AP® Statistics exam, and review the scoring of the 2016 AP® Statistics exam in great detail. Finally, we will discuss how to start an AP® Statistics program, how to select materials for use in class, how to recruit students, how to assess students, and how to prepare students for the AP® exam.
What Participants Should Bring
- A grAP®hing calculator. (I will be modeling instruction using both the TI-84 and TI-Nspire)
- A laptop computer and/or tablet
- Your statistics textbook
- Your school calendar
