AP Statistics Assignment for 11/20, plus Test Warning

Finish reading Chapter 12. Pay particular attention to the sections on matching, blinding, and placebos, as these were important topics we didn’t enough time to discuss in class.

Your next Personal Progress Check has been assigned. Log into AP Classroom and complete the Unit 3 MCQ Part B PPC by Monday, November 25

On Monday, we will have our Unit 3 Test. We will spend Friday reviewing, and in preparation for that you should take a look at the review problems for Unit 3: pages 331-336, exercises 1, 3, 7, 9, 11, 15, 19, 20, 23, 29, 32, 40, 41. You’ll get answers and supplemental review on Friday.

Tomorrow, Thursday the 21st, you’ll have an in class investigative task for Chapter 12, where you will be asked to design an experiment for a scenario. Unlike other tasks, this will be closed notes/closed book, and your hand-written response will be due at the end of the period.

AP Statistics Assignment for 11/6

Today in class you were given one last simulation task: the Chapter 10 Investigative Task – The Butler Did it. Your response to this task is due at the start of class tomorrow, November 7, but your plan is due by the end of class.

Your response should be completed in a Google Document and submitted to me (bkirk@icsd.k12.ny.us) by the start of class tomorrow. Please name your file appropriately; it should have the format “LastName.FirstName.Ch10InvTask”.  For example, mine would be “Kirk.Benjamin.Ch10InvTask“.

We will be referring again to the Tale of Two Cities activity from last week. Period 1 can find your data here, and period 7 students can find your data here.

Finish reading Chapter 7 (Pages 192-197). Also, watch this video from APStatsGuy, which gives a great explanation for how r^2, the Coefficient of Determination, is interpreted.

From pages 208-209, do 24a, 33, 34, and 48

Also: read over the Chapter 7 Investigative Task. As with previous tasks, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions about this in class tomorrow and will have the weekend to complete your response in a Google Document, to be shared with me once you are done. A heads up: your response will be due by 10:00am on Monday, October 14 (not Tuesday when we get back!)

AP Statistics Assignment for 9/20

Read the What If? and What Can Go Wrong sections from Chapter 4 (pages 93-95).

Over the weekend, write your response for the Chapter 4 Investigative Task (Auto Safety). As before, you may use your textbook and notes to help you write your response, and you may use the Internet to access Google Docs and Stapplet or whatever other graph-making tools you want to use, but you may use no other resources other than those. Do not go online looking for more information, and definitely no working with other students on this assignment.

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, the 23rd. Please name your file appropriately; it should have the format “LastName.FirstName.Ch4InvTask”.  For example, mine would be “Kirk.Benjamin.Ch4InvTask“.

Do not go online looking for more information, and definitely no working with other students on this assignment.

Because some folks have asked, you can find instructions on taking screenshots using a Chromebook here. I recommend the Ctrl+Shift+Window Switch shortcut to take a screenshot of only the particular items you want to use.
