AP Statistics

Pre-Requisites: Algebra 2
Credits: 1.0
Estimated Completion Time: 32-36 weeks


Advanced Placement Statistics will introduce students to exploring data, sampling and experimentation by planning and conducting studies, anticipating patterns using probability and simulation, and employing statistical inference in order to analyze data and draw conclusions.

Grading Policy

To achieve success, students are expected to submit work in each course weekly. Students can learn at their own pace; however, “any pace” still means that students must make progress in the course every week. To measure learning, students complete self-checks, practice lessons, multiple choice questions, simulated AP exams, projects, discussion-based assessments, and discussions. Students are expected to maintain regular contact with teachers; the minimum requirement is monthly. When teachers, students, and parents work together, students are successful. Students must take the Advanced Placement exam to receive Advanced Placement credit. Students who complete the course successfully but do not take the AP exam will receive Probability & Statistics credit. College Board has authorized FLVS to use the AP designation.
