NCVPS will offer AP Statistics again in the fall of 2017. NCVPS has redesigned the courses, and we are eager for its rollout in the fall.
Course Code: 25117X0 (2A037X0 for future)
Course Level: Advanced Placement
Course Offering: Year-long for 1 credit
Prerequisites: Math 3 or equivalent
Course Description: This is a year-long course that requires a 90-minute daily class amount of time. Also, students need to spend time working at home a minimum of 30 minutes daily on the textbook readings, class discussions, assignments, and tests. The course is designed to prepare students to collect, analyze and draw conclusions from data. Students will learn how to view data through a discriminatory eye to determine validity and be able to interpret data and analysis that is valid. Teaching the course is somewhat different than other traditional mathematics courses because it provides an answer to the age old mathematics student question of, “When are we going to use this?” Students will use real data, whether self collected or from a primary source, to perform analysis or to test hypotheses. Students will conduct simulations and studies to help anchor topics throughout the course. Data will come from a variety of sources ranging from national newspapers to organization websites. Students will be prepared to successfully take the AP Statistics exam in May.
