AP Statistics is a rigorous mathematical preparation for the College Board AP Statistics Exam and is considered equivalent to entry-level statistics and statistics within Social Science classes (Psychology 101; Sociology 101) at the college level. This course introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing and drawing conclusions from data, including four broad conceptual themes:
Exploring Data: describing patterns and departures from patterns;
Sampling and Experimentation: planning and conducting a study;
Anticipating Patterns: exploring random phenomena using probability and simulation;
Statistical Inference: estimating population parameters and testing hypotheses.
