We have started to review for our AP exam. Please bring your review books in to class every day for the first week of review (see schedule).
- Tuesday, May 1st – Practice AP Exam – Periods 0-3 in New Gym
- Thursday, May 17th – Actual AP Exam – Noon to 4:00
Finish the 2017 Free Response questions. We’ll grade the remaining problems we didn’t get to in class tomorrow.
We started Unit 9 today, a unit that is partially review and partially new content around exponential functions. Our first lesson used M&Ms to model exponential growth and decay. If you were in class today, you should finish the lab sheet for the activity. If you were not in class today, your homework is HW 9.1 – Investigating Exponential Functions
Finish Practice Exam 1 from the review book. We’ll discuss questions briefly tomorrow, but the majority of our time will be spent taking a look at the Free Response questions from the 2017 exam.
After your test today, you got the usual two-sided assignment. Do either side, your choice which, for a homework credit. Do both sides for extra credit on the test.
Start working on Practice Exam 1, multiple choice questions 1-15 and free response questions 1, 2, and 3.
Finish the multiple choice from Topic 7 (p 191), then do Free Response questions 6 and 8.
From your review book, read over Topic 7 – Probability as Relative Frequency (p191) and complete the even Multiple Choice questions and Free Response questions 2 and 3 (note that this is different from what I originally said on the review calendar I gave you on Thursday; it has been updated on the Google Document found here).
As before, check your answers in you book and come prepared with questions on Monday.
The instructions for today’s activity can be found here.
Your test on Unit 8 will be on Tuesday, April 24th. We will spend tomorrow (Friday) and Monday reviewing for this test. Tonight for homework, choose any two of the IXL modules posted below and get your score up to at least an 80.
Remember: your IXL username is your first initial and your last name, followed by “1@ithaca” and your password is “abc123” (some of you have a slightly different username, please email me or post here if you have trouble logging in).
Read the introduction of your review book (pages 1-3) for a brief rundown on the format of the exam and some pointers about how it is graded. Then flip ahead to Topic 4 (Exploring Categorical Data: Two-Way Tables, page 139). Read through the examples there and complete the Multiple Choice questions at the end of the section, plus Free Response Questions 1 and 2. Review the answers to these exercises at the end of the section, and come in tomorrow (with your book!) prepared with whatever questions you still want to ask.
Your Unit 7 (and last!) test is tomorrow. You got some review materials in class today, and you can find them uploaded here. Post here or email me with any questions!
Your final Unit test will be on Thursday, April 19th. As with the Unit 6 test, you will be asked to identify when to use each inference procedure you have learned up until this point, but you will only be asked to do the procedures from Unit 7 (the three Chi-Squared tests and the regression slope t-test).
In preparation, go to the review section for Unit 7 (pages 745-749) and identify the procedure, distribution, and degrees of freedom used for each of the scenarios in questions 6, 9, 11, 14, 17, 20, 29, 31, and 32 (all parts!). Then, please complete exercises 8 (abcd only), 12, 13, and 21 (b,c only).
Read pages 715-729 from chapter 26. Skip the starred section on standard error of predicted values.
From pages 733-735, do exercises 28, 30, 49
We’re almost done…
From Chapter 26, read pages 706-715, stopping at the section on “Standard Error of the Slope,” then from the exercises on pages 730-735, do 1, 7, 24, 35
