Study design and data analysis is quickly becoming one of the most sought after capabilities of college graduates in the 21st century workforce. My goal for you this year is to build a solid foundational knowledge of the principles of statistics to foster skeptical thinking, empower you to make sense of data to answer questions impartially, to aid you in further college study regardless of major, and pass the AP® Statistics Exam which would earn you 3.0 units of college credit for in introductory statistics in AP® accepting colleges. See the class syllabus below...
"I took AP Statistics last year as a senior. I’m currently a biology major at CSU, Chico and as a result, I have to write many lab reports for both my biology and chemistry classes. Most students in my laboratory session were confused on the data analysis portion of the report—I had a good idea of how to approach this task but forgot the details. I remembered that you post your notes online and I just wanted to email you in gratitude because your notes saved me plenty of time, stress, and served me as a quick refresher on statistics. I even shared, “if p is too low, reject Ho” to my lab partners to which they were grateful and used the “We are..” conclusion phrase you managed to dig deep in my brain. May I add, in my political science class, we constantly analyze data and demographics. I’m able to easily identify potential biases and make predictions with ease—seriously, a piece of cake. You were completely right, statistics is everywhere!"
