AP Statistics

Course Description

AP Statistics is an introductory college-level statistics course that introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students cultivate their understanding of statistics using technology, investigations, problem solving, and writing as they explore concepts like variation and distribution; patterns and uncertainty; and data-based predictions, decisions, and conclusions.

Students enrolled in AP Statistics will be introduced to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing and drawing conclusions from data. Students will be exposed to four broad conceptual themes: exploring data; sampling and experimentation; anticipating patterns; and statistical inference. Students will find themselves in a course similar to a college level Elementary Statistics course. Throughout the course, students will practice AP type problems and questions.

*This course is offered for dual credit through UMSL.

Grade Level(s): 11th/12th

Curricula for Advanced Placement (AP) courses are created by the American College Board, which offers high level coursework and exams to high school students.  Colleges and universities may grant placement and course credit to students who obtain high scores on examinations.  Curriculum for each subject area is created by a panel of experts and college-level educators in that field of study.  An overview of the AP Stats course can be found HERE.  The Course & Exam Description (CED) can be found HERE.
