AP Statistics Assignment for 1/18, plus Test Warning

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.

Report your findings here


For homework this weekend/next week, please finish reading Chapter 16, pages 423-429, then work on exercises 32, 33, and 34 from page 432.

AP Statistics Assignment for 11/29

Work together on your project proposal. You’ll have about 10 minutes of class time tomorrow to finalize and submit it for my review. The rest of our time tomorrow will be spent reviewing Unit 3 for your test on Monday. The textbook review assignment again is on pages 331-336, exercises 1, 3, 7, 9, 11, 15, 19, 20, 23, 29, 32, 40, 41

AP Statistics Assignment for 11/28

Due to today’s 2-hour delay, we will have the in-class Chapter 12 Investigative Task tomorrow, Thursday. It will still be closed-notes/closed-book. The schedule in the mid-year project folder has been updated.

Today you finalized your idea and started work on your project proposal. This proposal is due on Friday at the start of class, so you will need to collaborate on this outside of class.

On Friday we will review for our Unit 3 test, to be held on Monday, December 3rd. By then, you should complete the textbook review assignment: pages 331-336, exercises 1, 3, 7, 9, 11, 15, 19, 20, 23, 29, 32, 40, 41

If you want to look again at my response to the Chubby Dogs experiment, you can find it here. Remember that we will have an in-class investigative task tomorrow, where I will ask you to design an experiment for another situation. This will be a closed-notes, closed-book task.

We started our discussion of the mid-year projects today. All of the details for the projects can be found here.

You’ll have some time on Thursday to finalize your idea and start work on your proposal, but you will likely need to spend some time out of class to finish it, as the proposal is due at the start of class on Friday the 30th.

On the 30th, we’ll spend some time reviewing Unit 3 for our test on Monday, December 3rd. By Friday, please complete the review assignment found on pages 331-336: exercises 1, 3, 7, 9, 11, 15, 19, 20, 23, 29, 32, 40, 41

AP Statistics Assignment for 11/26

Finish up Chapter 12 by reading pages 319-325 and doing exercises 32, 33, 39 from pages 327-329. Also please finish the Chubby Dogs Experiment example we started in class.

Upcoming Items of Note

  • Tomorrow, we’ll introduce the mid-year project. You’ll be forming project groups and brainstorming ideas initially, and will finalize your idea and submit a project proposal by Friday. If you want to preview the details of the project, you can find information here.

I would suggest you get started on the review assignment (will not be checked for homework, so don’t stress!): pages 331-336, exercises 1, 3, 7, 9, 11, 15, 19, 20, 23, 29, 32, 40, 41
