The AP Statistics session is designed for beginning as well as experienced teachers; it will prepare new teachers to develop and present an effective AP Statistics program and help more experienced AP teachers refine and improve upon their existing statistics teaching skills. Over the course of this institute we will discuss:
1. Topics included in the AP Statistics Course and Exam Description (C.E.D.) – review of content plus activities and other suggestions for teaching the content
2. Graphing Calculator usage; statistical software for AP Statistics
3. Teaching styles/strategies
4. Textbooks, websites and other resources for AP teachers
5. The AP exam format, exam preparation and scoring
Instructional formats will include presentations, activities, group discussions, problem-solving sets and more.
Participants are asked to bring information about their course textbook, calculators, and any software used. They will need a TI-84+ or TI-Nspire graphing calculator, a laptop computer and printer, and writing materials. College Board materials will be provided by the Institute and participants will have access to online materials from the consultant.
