# MA710 AP STATISTICS

**Course: **MA710 AP Statistics

**Grade: **11, 12

**Subject Area: **Mathematics

**Type: **Accelerated, Advanced Placement, Articulated Credits

**Credits: **1

**Course Information:**

This is a year-long course that requires selection of both semesters: S1 and S2. Accelerated College Advanced Program AP Statistics will introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. The main topics will include exploring data, planning a study, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference. All topics will be studied extensively with the use of graphing calculators and computer software. Students are expected to take the Advanced Placement exam in May. Ample time will be provided to review exam topics prior to the AP Exam. A TI-83 or TI-84 graphing calculator is required for this course.

**Outcomes:**

Construct and interpret distributions with graphs, charts, and tables

Describe and compare distributions

Calculate numerical summaries by hand and using technology

Describe and interpret locations in a distribution (z-scores, percentiles, etc.)

Perform Normal distribution calculations including assessing normality

Construct and interpret scatterplots

Measure, calculate and interpret correlation and a least square regression line

Interpret computer output Describe different sampling methods (Stratified, Cluster, etc.)

Conduct simple random samples (using a random number table, and technology)

Design comparative experiments (completely randomized, randomized block, and matched pairs designs)

Use rules of probability to construct venn diagrams, two-way tables and determine probabilities

Apply the concept of discrete random variables to many different statistical settings

Calculate the expected values of a discrete random variable

Describe continuous random variables

Compute probabilities involving binomial and geometric random variables

Define and distinguish between population distribution, sampling distribution, and the distribution of sample data

Estimate a population proportion and mean using confidence intervals

Interpret confidence intervals in context

Conduct significance tests with populations proportions and means

Conduct chi-square goodness of fit tests

**Prerequisites:**

Minimum grade of C- in Pre-Calculus or Algebra II

**Corequisites:**
