AP Statistics Assignment for Week of 5/12

This week’s assignment

We have another practice exam for you this week. Please complete it by next Tuesday, the 19th.

  • Click Here for Practice Exam Question 1
    • Give yourself 30 minutes to complete this question (25 to write your response, 5 minutes to upload it)
    • Decide on a submission option from the test guide page to practice using (maybe try a different one than you used last time, to see how well that goes for you).
  • Click Here for Practice Exam Question 2
    • Give yourself 20 minutes to complete this question (15 to write your response, 5 minutes to upload it)
    • Decide on a submission option from the test guide page to practice using. Try using the same one as Question 1, or experiment with a different option.
  • I will score your response according to a rubric. Your grade will be based on your completion (10 points in SchoolTool)
  • Please plan on completing these by Tuesday, 5/19 at 2:00 pm

Last Week’s Assignment

I’ll be sending out some general feedback about your responses to the practice AP exam questions posted last week. In the meantime, you can review some model solutions here:

A quick note about the Investigative Tasks you turned in last week: Ms. Seifert and I want to give you another chance at completing this assignment. We realized too late that the videos on StatsMedic, while thorough and sufficient for the AP exam, skip over some of the finer, smaller details the AP ignores that we feel are still important. We’re going to prepare some additional videos to review from so that you can optionally resubmit your investigative task response before we give it a formal grade. Stay tuned for that!

Thursday Virtual Class Time

We will have our usual virtual class session on Thursday, May 14 at 10:00. We’ll be using Google Meet this time. Link: https://meet.google.com/rhp-awup-yuy

Update (5/14): If you missed the meeting but would still like to work on the practice exam, you can find it posted here. My model solution is here, and I’ve posted a video of my debrief and a discussion here (the password is my classroom number at IHS!)

Based on the results of the Google Poll I sent out over the weekend, you want to use our last two sessions for 1) Live timed practice AP questions with discussions afterwards and 2) Prepared lectures on review topics. This then will be our plan for this session and the one on the 21st.

If you have questions about review, about a practice AP, or about anything from the year, please sign up for Office Hours

Office Hours

The results of the weekend’s check-in poll also indicated that you would prefer a combination of appointments and open drop-in time for office hours, with a heavier preference towards the latter. Please review the schedule posted here to sign up for a session.

Drop-in Hours:

  • Wednesday from 10:00 am to noon and from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
  • Friday from 10:00 am to noon

Official Scheduled Hours: 

  • Thursday from 11:00 am to 12:15 pm
  • Friday from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm

I may be available at other times this week as well. Let me know when you’d like to meet!

Additional AP Review

At this point, I am expecting you to take charge of your own review for this exam. Here are some options:

  • OTHER STATS MEDIC UNITS: I encourage you to review Units 1-4 in Stats Medic as well. I do not currently have plans to assign any content from these units, but there is very useful review to be found there, and I’m happy to answer any questions you may have about that content. Just send me an email or sign up for an office hours session.
  • AP VIDEO STREAMS: There is a big archive of videos on the AP Statistics YouTube page. Live streams end this week, but there is some excellent review content there.
  • AP CLASSROOM: You have access to a number of free response questions in your AP Classroom account. They are marked with a small green bulls-eye image. They are not necessarily written to mirror what this year’s exam would look like, but the content they cover would be very useful to review.
  • ONLINE MATH PRACTICE: All AP Statistics students have been granted access to IXL, an online math practice tool. There are skill practice modules for math content all the way from Kindergarten through Calculus, and there’s even some decent AP Statistics content. You will have to log in via Clever (instructions are here), click the IXL button on the page that loads, and then navigate to the Pre Calculus section. Any of the modules in sections X: Probability, Y: Probability Distributions, or Z: Statistics would be worthwhile practice for you!
  • BARRON’S REVIEW BOOK: I have decided not to formally use the Barron’s review book I recommended you purchase earlier this year. The book is written for a more traditional exam, so much of it likely won’t be relevant to this year’s test. If you did get the book, the content in Topics 1-12 covers everything that may appear on this year’s test.
