AP Statistics (Sem 1)

Subject Mathematics
Grade Level High School

Description

This course offers a combination of assessment and instruction in an online environment containing but not limited to the areas of exploring data, sampling and experimentation by planning and conducting studies, anticipating patterns using probability and simulation, and using statistical inference to analyze data and draw conclusions. The purpose of this course is to provide students with a deep understanding of the concepts of statistics to prepare them for the AP Exam and for future higher education statistics courses. Because this course is presented in an online format, the pace and schedule vary from student to student, and no additional topics are presented past the exam time. The suggested pace is 18 weeks per semester (two semesters total), but students are allowed to accelerate their pace provided learning standards are met and proficiency in the content is demonstrated. All instruction is provided for the students, with feedback given for every exam, on which students are required to show work or give reasons to support statements to achieve statistical proficiency. The teacher is also available at least five days a week for one-on-one support and help for the students, in addition to holding online collaborative lessons and conducting Discussion-Based Assessments with students. Learning is assessed via traditional quizzes and tests, graded free-response essay questions, investigative projects, collaboration with peers, and oral one-on-one evaluations with the instructor.

Limited Course Capacity

We’re sorry to inform you that we have reached capacity for several of our Semester 1 and Trimester 1 courses. You’ll notice when attempting to enroll students in our Student Learning Portal that some courses are unavailable. While we are no longer accepting new enrollments for these courses at this time, many courses continue to remain open for enrollment.

With many students across the state 100% remote, demand for our online courses is greater than ever before. Because every course we offer is taught by a Michigan-certified teacher, this high volume of enrollments has created capacity issues for our teachers who provide each and every student with individual feedback.

While the Michigan Virtual team anticipated and planned for significant increases in student enrollments this Fall, the increased demand we’ve experienced has been unprecedented. As a result, we are taking steps to hire even more part-and full-time teachers to support larger numbers of student enrollments for Semester 2 as well as for Trimester 2 and 3. 

For schools that still need online learning options this year, please fill out the form at the bottom of our virtual pathways page to meet with someone to discuss other solutions. While some of our teacher-led courses are full, we may still have the capacity to help you in upcoming terms or can discuss timing to implement a whole-school or collaborative program in which local teachers from your school/district use our online course content to teach students. We also have free course content and resources available for you to use.

We know this is an incredibly stressful time for all, and we’re sorry if the courses you’re looking for are unavailable. We never want to turn away a student who wants to learn from us. Our top concern, however, is student success, and we have a policy to not take on additional enrollments if we cannot guarantee that all students will have a quality online learning experience. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the unusually high volume of enrollments we are receiving.
