AP Statistics Assignment for 2/5

Your Unit 4 Test is tomorrow. You got a batch of review materials today, which you can find online here. If you’re interested in reviewing the noted summary of differences between the binomial and geometric models, you can find it here.

I encourage you to work on additional problems from the textbook. I can provide answers on request.

If you have an active IXL account from another class, you could also check out the practice modules in sections X and Y of the PreCalculus section of IXL. Even if you don’t have an account, the system should let you do about 20 problems, which might still be useful!

The applet for today’s activity can be found here. Using this simulator, find:

  • Two very different values of p and n that create a distribution that you would confidently identify as “normal”
  • Two very different values of p and n that create a distribution that you would confidently identify as “not normal”
  • At least one value of p and n that creates a distribution that might be normal, but you’re on the fence about.

AP Statistics Assignment for 10/30

Reminder: For Thursday, work on multiple choice question 1-15 from the Unit 2 practice exam, found on pages 264-266 of your textbook. We’ll start things off on Thursday with a brief discussion of these answers. Note: Unlike other assignments from your textbook, this assignment is required and will be checked for completeness.

In addition, you received a playing card today and corresponding instructions about producing 200 coin flips. If the card was black, I’m asking you to actually flip a coin 200 times and record the results. If the card was red, I’m asking you to make up the result of 200 coin flips (not simulate them, totally make them up). Bring in those results tomorrow as well and I will attempt to sort your results based on how they were derived (either legitimate flips or made up ones).
