The intent of the AP Statistics curriculum is to
offer a modern introduction to statistics that is
equal to the best college courses in an
intellectual content and in its alignment with the
contemporary practice of statistics.

Students will interpret data displays, summarize
distributions, and compare distributions of one
and two variables. Students will plan and
conduct statistical studies. They will study
probability and use it in simulations. Finally,
students will learn to construct confidence
intervals and perform significance testing.
