There are four broad conceptual areas: exploring data, sampling and experimentation, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference. Course evaluation will be based on homework, discussion, quizzes, projects, and examinations. The course will use the question banks and practice tests provided by the College Board to prepare students for the types of questions they will see on the AP exam.

Reviews from Students and Parents

“By the end of the year, I was completely confident in my ability to get the score I wanted on the AP exam. Both the teacher and the resources that were provided perfectly prepared me for all tests while also ensuring my complete understanding of the subject. Even if statistics does not seem interesting, what is taught in this course is very relevant today and applicable to many areas of study.”

“This course thoroughly prepares you for the AP exam and more importantly, introduces you to statistics, the most applicable math course ever. It’s more than simply mastering the numbers, but understanding how to use them appropriately and correctly. The skills you can acquire through this will not only help in the AP Statistics exam but many others like the SAT. And the excellent and experienced teacher not only equips you for the exam but will encourage and brighten you up with his enthusiasm for statistics and dad jokes.”

“This was an EXCELLENT course. I truly enjoyed our teacher. He has a profound knowledge of Statistics, and in fact even wrote the textbook which we used for our course. He was also an AP grader, which immensely helped us as he guided us through exactly how each AP question would be graded, and always taught the class with a passion, which made me (almost) enjoy a subject I’ve never quite enjoyed, which is math.”

“I have always had an interest in Statistics and was excited to see that TPS was offering the class. The class lived up to my expectations and I was pleasantly surprised by how comprehensive the course was even over an online format. The course was well planned out and the classes were engaging and fun. The course material is challenging, but quite rewarding if you are willing to put in the work!”

“Although statistics is a challenging subject, I feel I received all the help and resources I needed to better grasp each concept. We were given College Board AP resources, assignments, and projects that all worked to deepen our understanding. We were given many opportunities to practice with AP exam questions so that my confidence only grew as the year progressed to take the AP exam.”

“I feel like this course thoroughly prepared me for the AP test in all areas. The pace was not too fast, and I did not feel overloaded with homework, but we finished learning all the new concepts with plenty of time for review. After the review, I feel completely ready to take the AP test.”
