The AP Program provides an opportunity for secondary school students to pursue and receive credit for college-level coursework while attending secondary school. Advanced Placement Statistics closely follows the guidelines and topics of the most recent College Board Advanced Placement Course Description, which is the summary of concepts needed for preparation for the Advanced Placement Examination. Students who successfully complete the course at Saint Joseph Preparatory High School will be prepared to take the Advanced Placement Exam in Statistics.
AP Statistics involves the study of four main areas: exploratory analysis, planning a study, probability, and statistical inference. According to the College Board, upon entering this course students are expected to have mathematical maturity and quantitative reasoning ability. Mathematical maturity could be defined as a complete working knowledge of the graphical and algebraic concepts through Math Analysis, including linear, quadratic, exponential, and logarithmic functions. In contrast to many math classes, this course will require reading of the text. This AP Statistics course is taught as an activity-based course in which students actively construct their own understanding of the concepts and techniques of statistics.
