Grades: 10, 11, 12AP Statistics introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. There are four themes evident in the content, skills, and assessment in the AP Statistics course: exploring data, sampling and experimentation, probability and simulation, and statistical inference. Students use technology, investigations, problem solving, and writing as they build conceptual understanding. The AP Statistics course is equivalent to a one-semester, introductory, non-calculus-based college course in statistics. Students are expected to have a graphing calculator for this course. A TI-84 is recommended, but other graphing calculators are adequate as long as they have statistical analysis tools.
The State of Indiana requires students to sit for AP exams in order to qualify for the Academic Honors Diplomas as well as the new Graduation Pathway requirements. Therefore, any student at Noblesville High School enrolled in a College Board Advanced Placement course will be required to sit for the corresponding exam. Cumulative grade point averages will be re-calculated retroactively without the grade weight for students who do not take the exam. The cost of AP assessments are decided by the College Board; however, the cost of this exam is currently covered by the State of Indiana.Prerequisites: Algebra II
