    AP Statistics 

    AP Statistics is a course in the Advanced Placement (AP) Program developed by the College Board. AP Statistics is designed to be the secondary school equivalent, upon taking the Advanced Placement Examination, to a one-semester, introductory, non-calculus based, college course in statistics. Its purpose is to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. AP Statistics has four themes: exploring data, planning a study, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference. For more information on the topics and concepts covered in this course, please visit College Board’s AP Statistics website.

    Students enrolled in this course are expected to take the Advanced Placement examination in AP Statistics in May. As different colleges have different criteria for placement and for calculus credit, we suggest that the student make inquiries at their colleges of interest, to determine the score necessary for credit and for placement.
