Credits: 5
    Prerequisite: Algebra 2 Honors or Pre-Calculus Honors or 91 in Pre-Calculus CP
    Grades: 10, 11, 12

    The purpose of the course is to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing and drawing conclusions from data. The topics covered in this course are divided into four major themes: Exploring Data: Describing patterns and departures from patterns, Sampling and Experimentation: Planning and conducting a study, Anticipating Patterns: Exploring random phenomena using probability and simulation, Statistical Inference: Estimating population parameters and testing hypotheses. Students use graphing calculators and computer technology extensively to organize and analyze data. All students enrolled in Advanced Placement courses are required to take the Advanced Placement Examinations in May (see Policy 2429 & Program of Studies page 5).

    Supplies: Binder with filler paper, Chromebook, TI-84+ Calculator, writing utensil, good attitude
