Broad purpose of course:  The AP Statistics course is taught as an activity based course in which the following topics are explored: Exploring Data, Experimental Design, Anticipating Patterns, and Statistical Inference.  Throughout the course students will complete problems from previous AP Free Response and released multiple choice sections, they will look at the solutions, scoring guidelines and sample student responses.  The culminating activity in the course is a project in which the students design an experiment, carry out data collection, look at descriptive statistics, carry out a hypothesis test and analyze and communicate their results.  The culminating project allows students to make meaningful connections between the four major topics taught in the course.
