AP Statistics Summer Institute - July 6-9, 2015
This course is designed primarily for new teachers in AP Statistics. However, experienced teachers will find many useful things to take back to their classrooms. Much of the week will be devoted to experimental design, correlation and regression, probability models, and inference. We will discuss how to organize the course and how to use technology, simulation and data-gathering activities. Time will be spent working with activities and simulations as a building block for the course. At least one morning will be allocated for working on laptops to view and use online resources and applets that are immensely useful for the course.
In addition to the binder for the week, participants will receive a flash drive, which will be loaded with lessons, worksheets/handouts, class note sheets, a set of old tests, AP practice sets, projects, and activities. Participants will review the 2015 test through the questions, rubrics and the grading of student responses.
The registration fee ($475) includes classroom materials, light lunches and snacks each day.
