Ms. Lewis from Carson CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Start an Advanced Placement Statistics Class

My students need 30 statistics books so that I can teach an Advanced Placement Statistics class. This will be an elective for students seeking to learn statistics.

  • $3,180 goal

This project expired on November 28, 2013.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

We are a small magnet high school which specializes in engineering and biotechnology. We do not offer as many Advanced Placement classes as other competitive high schools. A grant has given us the opportunity to fill this need.

Our students come from diverse backgrounds.

Some will be the first in their families to graduate from high school and many will be the first to attend college. Many are from disadvantaged homes or are recent immigrants. These students are highly motivated to succeed in school. We try to give them as many advantages as we can to leverage them in their pursuit of a better life for themselves and their families.

My Project

These books will allow us to study the subject of statistics which is relevant to many of the careers they seek in the future. Many of our students conduct science experiments for their annual science fair but few students have the tools to analyze their data. Many simply draw conclusions based on a likelihood that their hypothesis is correct without actual statistical proof that this conclusion is correct. This course will add to their arsenal of analytical tools for these projects and for those they will conduct in actual lab work in the future.

As we develop our biotechnology and medical field pathways, our students will need the tools to understand the complexities of the world they are studying.

Statistics will give them an important tool for this analysis.
