This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend it because I think it applies more to everyday life in comparison to the other mathematics I have taken. It's a foundation that is essential going into college.
Course highlights:
My classroom was flipped, so I learned how to go my own pace and teach myself throughout the course, time management was a big thing I had to work on. I also learned how to do confidence intervals and see through lies people tell with surveys.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Ask a lot if questions, because it is very challenging and very confusing sometimes, and always focus on your studies, don't get behind or you may not do well.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The reason as to why I would recommend this class is that, I learned a lot and understood a lot of what she taught. Its a very good class, I took many things from this subject and teacher!
Course highlights:
The highlights from this course were actually getting time to sit down and go through things that didnt make a whole lot of sense. Its was very deep and I understood after taking the time.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
The advice I would give to future students considering this course is that, be perpared and understand it is a math class and if you aren't too good a math you will need tot take some time out of the class to keep up. Its is a good class but it is quick so again take the time out of your day to review.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
In AP Statistics there is a discussion based classroom that includes all students and encourages participation. Mr. Shahin does a phenomenal job of creating an open discussion and inquiry into statistics where all students are welcome to ask questions and provide solutions. Instead of using boring chalk-board teaching methods, his approach uses varying student experience to help students come to the right conclusion themselves.
Course highlights:
Throughout this course you will learn a variety of different methods to collect, organize and analyze sets of data. Using a combination of Math and English, students will find themselves less overcome with the stress of memorizing math equations, but instead, actually thinking through realistic concepts and producing factually accurate conclusions. The intricacies of Statistics will provide students with a large base of information moving forward into a world full of statistics used in advertisements and political arguments.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
This course is about 75% English and 25% Math. With that being said, the majority of information will be gathered through a textbook and the discussion of texts in class. There are no class-guided notes so I recommend that you stay prepared to right down anything important you may hear. If you want to spend time enjoying an AP class that is the perfect balance between writing, reading, discussion and math, then AP Statistics is the class for you!
