AP Statistics Review Phase 1


Our review for the AP Exam has started. Phase 1 will take us to the practice AP exam on Thursday, April 25th at 8:00 am in York Lecture Hall. More details will be posted soon.

The review calendar for the first part can be found here. Most of this review will be done out of the Barron’s review books you have obtained, so plan on bringing those to class for the first several days of review. There is a lot more to these books than we plan to do in class, so please continue to work through the practice tests and other chapters on your own.

Don’t forget to attend an AP Pre-Administration Session. The sessions are as follows (and all of them take place in York Lecture Hall):

  • Wednesday, 4/10: Periods 4, 5, 8
  • Thursday, 4/11: Periods 0, 2, 6, and after school

Sessions start immediately at the start of the period, and you will not be allowed in if you are late. Expect to stay the full period.

AP Statistics Assignment for 4/5

This weekend, complete the Chapter 25 Investigative Task, using the tests you settled on in class today. If you want to change your mind about which test you use to answer each question, that is okay! Just include an explanation of why you are changing your mind.

As usual, your response should be completed in a Google Document and submitted to me (bkirk@icsd.k12.ny.us) by the start of class on Monday. Please name your file appropriately.  The file name should have the format “LastName.FirstName.Ch25InvTask”. For example, mine would be “Kirk.Benjamin.Ch25InvTask”.

Finally, if you have not yet shown me your purchased copy of the Barron’s AP Statistics review book you must have for our AP exam review (or sent me a selfie with both you and the book), please do so by Monday.

AP Statistics Assignment for 3/28

You knew this was coming! Tonight, please complete the Chapter 24 Investigative Task – SAT Part II. Use the same sample you selected for the previous task (though here’s the sampling frame again if you need to gather a new sample) and submit your response to me by the start of class tomorrow.

As usual, your response should be completed in a Google Document and submitted to me (bkirk@icsd.k12.ny.us). Please name your file appropriately.  The file name should have the format “LastName.FirstName.Ch24InvTask”. For example, mine would be “Kirk.Benjamin.Ch24InvTask”.

Finally, it’s getting to be about time where we will start reviewing for the AP exam. We will be using the 9th edition of Barron’s AP Statistics review book to aid our review process. Please purchase a copy of this book by Friday, April 5th. By Friday, either bring in your book or take a selfie of you holding it with your name clearly written across the front. Every student must have their own copy of this book, that you can write in and mark up as we go through our review. If you are concerned about obtaining your own copy (for whatever reason), please contact me ASAP and we’ll work out an arrangement.

AP Statistics Assignment for 3/27

You met with a group of peers in class today to look at a set of review problems from both Unit 5 and Unit 6. Your assignment tonight is to complete the inference procedure suggested by each question. You must do each question your group assigned to you in its entirety on separate pieces of paper. When we get back to class tomorrow, you’ll have time to check in with your group before stacking the problem sheets, stapling them together, and turning them in to me.

If you weren’t in class today, then pick any three of the problems in the file linked above, complete your response, and turn them in.

AP Statistics Assignment for 1/30

We will have our group redo of the Unit 4 test in class tomorrow. The extra credit puzzles you got today should be turned in tomorrow as well.

By Friday, please work on the Unit 4 Practice Exam, pages 439-443. Complete the odd numbered multiple choice questions, as well as free response question 2. Do this on a separate piece of paper; you’ll be trading papers and grading each others’ responses!

AP Statistics Assignment for 11/1

For tomorrow, you should complete the multiple choice questions (1-15) from the Unit 2 Practice Exam – pages 264-266.

In addition to that, you were given a novel task in class today. I am asking you, based on the draw of a card, to either actually flip a coin 200 times and record the results or to make up the results of 200 coin flips and enter them on this sheet. If you weren’t in class today (Thursday) to get your assignment, flip a coin one time first to see which version you will actually be doing: If it is heads, flip the coin 200 more times; if it is tails, make them up.

AP Statistics Assignment for 9/28

We’ll be doing a group redo of today’s test on Monday. This redo will be graded just as your test is, though will count differently within the grade calculation.

After the test today, you got an extra credit puzzle that you are welcome to complete and turn in on Monday. But by Tuesday, spend some time looking at the Practice Exam at the end of the unit. It’s on pages 147-149, and I want you to complete the 10 multiple choice questions listed. We’ll discuss them on Tuesday.
