AP Statistics involves the study of four main areas: exploratory analysis; planning a study; probability; and statistical inference. According to the College Board, upon entering this course students are expected to have mathematical maturity and quantitative reasoning ability. Mathematical maturity could be defined as a complete working knowledge of the graphical and algebraic concepts through Math Analysis, including linear, quadratic, exponential, and logarithmic functions. In contrast to many math classes, this course will require reading of the text. This AP statistics course is taught as an activity based course in which students actively construct their own understanding of the concepts and techniques of statistics.
