In our four days together, we will discuss important concepts 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 opportunities to use various types of technology, including graphing calculators and computer software. In addition, we will discuss how to select materials for use in class, how to assess students, how to prepare students for the AP exam, and the grading of the free response questions from the 2018 exam.
Participants should bring a laptop and your school calendar to help in planning for next year.
