DE Statistics
Marion Senior High School Math Instructor
Overview: Statistics is a college level course that will require more work than regular high school classes to be successful. It may require some students to spend an hour studying (or doing homework) each night. It is a fall block dual enrollment (DE) course with Wytheville Community College (WCC), after which students can elect to take an advanced placement (AP) exam in the spring. By successfully completing DE Stats you will get credit for MTH 245 Statistics I, 3 credit hours. Combined with AP and other DE classes, some students can be taking more than a standard freshman's (credit hour) load.

New to the course is a project requirement and using statistical analysis software. Because of the large use of Chromebooks at MSHS, we will use StatCrunch, an on-line statistical analysis software. The course now is very aligned with an AP statistics course.

Khan Academy is providing material (in concert with AP Central) on AP Statistics. Please click here to see what additional material they have.

A new resource, Sapling Media Learning, directly tied to our book can be found here.

Class needs: You will need a three-ring binder, notebook paper and pencils or pens for every class. I will supply student notes and handouts that you will need to keep in the three-ring binder. You will be issued a TI-84 calculator for the class that you will also have to have with you every day. If you would like to get your own calculator, it should be the TI-84 (plus or silver edition) as they have the easiest statistical package to use.

Frappies are real AP Statistics Free Response Questions and are given as take-home quizzes. They are based on Jason M. Molesky's concept from his Stat Monkey web site, which has lots of great resources.

Monthly Outside Class AP Review Sessions: TBD in the spring if any interest
