Striving for a 5 on the AP Stats Exam

My students need a complete class set of an updated AP Statistics book which will help them prepare for the AP Exam and potential let them earn college credit.

My Students

Working at a low-income, high-needs school has been incredibly rewarding. Many of my students face financial challenges outside of school. In fact, 51.8% of students at my school are enrolled in the Free or Reduced Lunch Program. Yet, my students refuse to let this stand in the way of their education!

My students are the reason I go to work, they are my inspiration.

They demonstrate dedication by coming in before school and staying after for tutoring to make sure they really understand a concept, even if this means waiting for the activity bus to take them home.

In every classroom and collaborative space, you would see students and teachers engaged in meaningful teaching and learning that sets students up for success in their lives after high school. We pride ourselves on creating a 21st century high school where every student, no matter his or her background, is challenged to communicate, collaborate, and think critically and creatively about real-world problems. Our AP course enrollment has soared in the last few years, and our students are achieving great things!

My Project

Last year, the supporters of DonorsChoose helped my fellow AP Stats teacher and me receive 20 updated AP Stats textbooks. The students in my course were greatly benefited by this gift that replaced our 14 year old books! We were a few books short of a class set which limited my student from being able to check out a book and work at home. In addition to the shortage, our school has switched this course to an A/B day schedule. This means that I will have two courses of AP Stats that meet on alternating days, year round. This schedule will be great in giving students the time needed to fully prepare for their exam without having a 3 month gap before the assessment. However, 20 books won't be sufficient for the 45 students enrolled in the course.

While the content of the AP Stats course has not changed much over the years, the way in which College Board assesses students' understanding on the AP Statistics exam has changed.

The types of questions and scenarios are different than they were 14 years ago. It's not that the field of statistics has fundamentally changed, but the focus of the course has shifted some from pure computation to more interpretation and inference based on students' calculations. The new books provide more questions that are similar to those that students will see on the AP exam.
