Welcome to AP Statistics!
AP (Advanced Placement) Statistics is a college level introductory course in Statistics. You'll learn how to collect, analyze, and interpret data. You can earn college credit for this course, either by taking the AP exam, or by registering for College-in-the-High-School through Everett Community College (for more information on this, scroll down below the calendar). Statistics is the most widely applicable branch of mathematics, used by more people in more different areas than any other kind of math. You'll never wonder when you'll ever use this stuff! Everyone who needs to collect and analyze data needs to understand Statistics. That's every branch of science, of course. And it's also important in the social sciences (psychology, sociology, anthropology, etc.), in business and economics, in political science and government, in law, and in medicine. There's a very strong chance you will use Statistics in college and in your career!
Summer homework is due the first day of school (September 6, 2017).
