AP Statistics Syllabus

AP Statistics 2018-2019 Mr. Bailey Room 4203 Ext 84203

Syllabus for the Class

For the First Semester of the Course, there will be 4 main units and cover the first 4 chapters.

1. The Analysis of Categorical Data

2. The Analysis of Experimental Data

3. Looking for
Relationships

4. Using Data to Predict the Population

A 5^{th} unit will be started in the first semester, but
will not be concluded until the early part of the second semester.

Each unit will be of equal weight and comprise of the following
subareas.

1. Quizzes that focus on basic definitions and skills

2. Exams that focus
on using the basic definitions and skills in context

3. Practice problems, either done in class or as homework.

The
weight of all quizzes combined for any unit will be the same as the weight of the exam. The problems will be weighted so that
it is approximately 11% of the weight of the entire unit. So that means that the quizzes are about 44% and the exam will be
about 44%

Beside the main units, there will be 3 other main categories.

5. Projects (there will be 2 this semester)

6. Frappy problems (These are AP type written response questions)

7. PBIS

Overall, the 4 main units be 75% of your grade. The Projects will be 12.5%, and the Frappy and PBIS will be 6.25% each.

Now for the part you need to pay very close attention to. EVERYTHING YOU DO IN HERE IS BASED ON A 4 POINT RUBIRC! It could be one rubric for the entire assignment, or several rubrics
if the assignment is composed of several problems. In any event, when you get anything back it will be based out of 4.

Most of
my rubrics go as 4, 3.5, 3, 2.5, and so on down to 0. More intricate assignments may have different possible score breakdowns. In any event, the grade breakdown is as follows:

A: 4 to 3.3 B: 3.29 to 2.6 C: 2.59 to 1.9 D: 1.89 to 1.3 F: Below 1.3
