AP® Statistics covers the content of one semester of an introductory, non-Calculus based, college curriculum in Statistics. This course covers major introductory topics in both descriptive and inferential statistics, such as mean, median, mode, variance, standard deviation, linear and nonlinear regression, correlation, and hypothesis testing. Students learn sampling procedures, estimate population characteristics, find and interpret confidence intervals, test hypotheses, compare two populations, and develop chi-squared tests. Students also learn to apply techniques for normal, binomial, geometric, and other discrete and continuous probability distributions. This course includes preparation and review for the AP statistics examination.
