## Welcome to AP Statistics

The purpose of Advanced Placement Statistics is to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students are exposed to four broad conceptual themes:

- Exploring Data: Observing patterns and departures from patterns (20%-30%)
- Planning and Conducting a Study: Deciding what and how to measure (10%-15%)
- Anticipating Patterns: Producing models using probability and simulation (20%-30%)
- Statistical Inference: Estimating parameters and testing hypotheses (30%-40%)
