Start working on Practice Exam 1, multiple choice questions 1-15 and free response questions 1, 2, and 3.
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.
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!
We had a practice day today in solving expected value related questions.
- Homework: HW 8.11 – Expected Value Practice
- Lesson video: Calculating Expected Value (fast forward to the 3 minute mark for a walk through of question 1 from the homework)
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
Your final Investigative Task assignment can be found here. For this task, you are being asked to complete three Chi-Squared tests to answer various questions about the results of the 2016 AP Statistics exam. You will spend some time thinking about which test to use for which question in class, and you will be asked to report your decision before you start on the task.
You are permitted to change your mind about which test is used for which question, but your task response must include an explanation for why you are changing your decision. As usual, your response should be completed in a Google Document and submitted to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the beginning of class tomorrow. Please name your file appropriately. The file name should have the format “LastName.FirstName.Ch25InvTask”. For example, mine would be “Kirk.Benjamin.Ch25InvTask“.
Finish reading chapter 25 (pages 687-697)
From pages 698-702, do exercises 1, 2, 8, 24, 27, 29
Also, fair warning that you will be assigned another Investigative Task tomorrow. You’ll have time to start thinking about it in class, but tomorrow’s homework will be to complete it.
Continue reading chapter 25, pages 681-687, up to the section on “Independence”
From the exercises on pages 700-701, do 16, 18, 20, 22
Read pages 672-681 from chapter 25, up to the section titled “Homogeneity.”
From the exercises on pages 698-699, do 5, 7, 11.
For Monday, finish the Practice Exam multiple choice questions (the even ones, 2-34) and complete free response question #6 from pages 666-671.
Do the extra credit assignment tonight if you want, but by Monday I want you to finish the Practice Exam multiple choice questions (the even ones, 2-34) and complete free response question #6 from pages 666-671.
Your Unit 6 test is tomorrow, and as another style of review we looked at some actual AP exam questions from past versions of the test. Specifically, we looked at 2014 Question 5 and 2012 Question 3 (these links bring up the entire exams, so find those questions specifically). If you weren’t in class today, I’d recommend you take a look at these questions, write out a response, and grade yourself based on the scoring guidelines here (2014 Q5) and here (2012 Q3).
Your test on Unit 6 will be tomorrow. Remember that while I will ask you questions about when any of the procedures we’ve used up to this point could be applied, the only procedures I’ll actually ask you to do are the ones from Unit 6 (i.e., the t-tests/intervals).
Remember that you Unit 6 test is on Thursday. For tomorrow, work on the cumulative review from the Practice Exam at the end of Unit 6. From pages 666-671, do the odd-numbered multiple choice questions as well as free response questions 2 and 5. We will discuss this work in class tomorrow.
We’re going to be doing the second part of the SAT task in class tomorrow, so be sure to bring your sample to class so you can refer to that. This task will be closed notes and closed textbook, so you might want to review the process for a 2-sample t-test and matched pairs t-test.
Your test on Unit 6 will be on Thursday, April 5th, and you can find the full set of review materials here. While the only inference procedures I’ll ask you to do will be from unit 6, you should still expect to need to identify when to use any of the procedures we’ve learned up to this point. I’d recommend you spend some time reviewing from unit 6, but also work on the cumulative review from the Practice Exam at the end of Unit 6. From pages 666-671, do the odd-numbered multiple choice questions as well as free response questions 2 and 5. This will be due on Wednesday.
When we get back from Spring Break, we will be reviewing for the Unit 6 test (we will also be having an in-class investigative task, fair warning!). You should spend some time working on the following review assignment
First, read the summary of the unit on pages 657-658, then on pages 659-665, do exercises 7, 8, 9, 31, 34. In addition, name the procedure used (and hypotheses, if applicable) for exercises 10, 15, 32, 36, 42.
We’ve reached the end of another unit, and today we started a group review assignment. The instructions can be found within the file. Keep in mind that this assignment is cumulative, and therefore could include any procedure learned in Units 5 or 6.
If you were absent on Thursday but will be in on Friday, you must complete problems 1, 4, and a third of your choice to submit in class tomorrow.
If you are absent both Thursday and Friday, you must complete problems 1, 4, and two others of your choice, and you must identify the procedures and (where applicable) hypotheses for all remaining questions. This will be collected from you on Monday after break.
