This workshop covers the four major content areas of AP Statistics: exploratory data analysis, data collection, probability, and statistical inference.
The workshop will provide AP Statistics instructors with insights into the material and will introduce techniques for presenting the ideas with which students struggle the most. Recent exam questions will be analyzed to give instructors a better understanding of the emphasis and expectations found in the course. The workshop layout will be flexible, providing opportunities for discussions of requested topics.
