I will be going through a final mock exam question number 2 (FRQ#2) live during this zoom session (on Friday we covered the FRQ#1). The zoom session from Friday May 15th with FRQ#1 and Key is uploaded to Canvas, expect the PowerPoint with FRQ#2 to be uploaded on Tuesday.

    I have also uploaded to Canvas a “Probability Suduko Review” and a “Choosing the Correct Procedure” problem set and key. Please send me any questions that you may have via email or log into our zoom session to ask :)

    On Friday morning the AP Statistics Exam begins at 11am- be logged in and ready with all supplies by 10:30am.

    You should expect to see your exam e ticket Monday or Tuesday. You may only use this e ticket to log into one device. If you have not already done the demo exam, please run through this with a sample practice upload of photo (jpeg) or word document; during the real exam you will have 5 minutes to upload- practice helps when you are under pressure.

    This week, get some good rest- go to bed on time…yes you…I know the 2am bedtime… or later…Practice the big picture ideas of HAMC Intervals and Tests, Study Design, Probability and SOCS. And take some time to exercise and relax.

    Each of you are amazing and I am honored to have guided you though this year. I am excited to hear about your achievements and to listen to your setbacks- true learning begins when we have both and together, we grow stronger. Each of you has made incredible progress this year and I am very proud of you.

    Wishing you many more smiles than frowns,

    Information to Go AP Statistics May 13th –15th Preparing for All AP Exams + AP Statistics Exam:  I hope that you and your families are safe and well.

    So here we go with AP Exam Season!  As you know, this week the testing began. Many of you are feeling confident about the new format for testing with several AP Exams already complete, while some of us are probably gearing up for our first.  You have worked all year to shine for the next two weeks- You Gots This!!

     Please know that during the two-week AP Testing timeframe, we will continue to meet with Zoom and Information to Go will still be sent, however I will not add any extra work during the testing schedule to free up your time to prepare for the exams.  Please work at your own pace through the materials  I have already provided, if more practice tests are released, I will promptly put these and their grading rubrics up on Canvas for your perusal.  I am aware that many of you are taking multiple exams- and I am very proud of each of you.  

    Please note, beginning next week, I will be moving my Information to Go to Monday morning delivery in place of Wednesday, as per district request.  This Information to Go is intended to fill the gap of Thursday and Friday this week only. 

    Preparing for the AP Statistics Exam:

    This week the AP Statistics Exam Review Practice includes:

    • AP Exam Tips- what we have learned in testing so far:
    • The most frequent question after the AP U.S. Government and Politics exam: “I forgot to write my AP ID and/or initials at the top of each page. Do I have to request a make-up?” The answer: No, your work can be scored even without that helpful info.”
    • However, please reiterate to students that they should set up their document in advance, putting their initials and AP ID at the top of each page.  
    • Please wait to see the “congratulations” screen that means you have submitted a response. You have 5 minutes to upload the response; however, as long as it has started the upload, your submission will be accepted even if the upload takes longer.
    • If students have technology issues that prevent them from submitting, they will complete a request for a make-up exam: https://apcoronavirusupdates.collegeboard.org/students/taking-ap/exams/setting-up-for-exams/etickets

    Your phone may not be in the correct mode for uploading- please check, and if needed change your settings, see Canvas or Zoom meeting from May12th notes for more information.

Please feel free to attend if you are able or to alternatively check Canvas for the power point note outlines.  You are welcome to attend any session 4th 5th or 6th – all are AP Statistics. Tues and Wed sessions will be the same as well as any Friday lesson. Please attend one of each at your convenience. :) Think of these zoom meetings as a mini-lesson plus some time to answer questions live- For safety, all Zoom codes and passwords are found in Canvas under Modules in the full "Information to Go" document.

    General Information:

    Welcome! I am excited to be teaching AP Statistics and Algebra at Jackson High and am looking forward to a fantastic year.

    As an introduction to my history as a math teacher: this is my twenty-second year teaching high school math. I began teaching in Arizona immediately following my graduation from Arizona State University with my Bachelors of Arts in Education (minor in Mathematics) in 1996. In 2000, I earned my Masters of Secondary Education (Mathematics) degree from Northern Arizona University. The mathematical focus of my master’s degree was statistical models. I have taught AP Statistics, AP Calculus, Precalculus, Geometry, and Algebra. I have also been a dual enrollment instructor previously, in Arizona for 11 years, in partnership with Rio Salado Community College, where I taught MAT167 Elementary Statistics and MAT187 Precalculus.

    With respect to my personal beliefs about education, I believe that all students can learn and are successful contributing members of our society. In the specific field of Mathematics, I am a strong component of Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) teaching strategies, the use of math learning models, and a growth mindset.

    In my classroom, I begin with the ideas of AVID, I break down learning into study habits that work. I teach note taking and study skills. I promote inquiry and interest in academics, by teaching students to become self-reliant with strong engagement in class. I support my students with a safe place to ask questions, to achieve, and to help, I am available often with study hall in my classroom.

    I believe that all students can learn math. I believe that modeling how we learn math is important. I encourage my students to seek answers and emphasize that making mistakes is when we learn. I challenge my kids to inquire and explore the ideas and principals of what we act like and do when we are learning math. I model and engage students in building connections within math. I teach my students to participate in quality questioning and reasoning. I challenge my students to think bigger. I provide time to privately think and then I challenge students to publicly explain their reasoning. I offer a classroom where engagement is expected and math learning is the clear goal.

    I teach my students to have a growth mindset, that with hard work everyone can learn. I reinforce a belief that if I work hard enough and keep trying, if I expect to make mistakes and to overcome them, then I will learn how to be an expert at anything I choose. I emphasize that hard work is how we achieve. Most of all I expect each of my children to succeed and I tell them so.

    Wishing you many more smiles than frowns- Deborah Faber
