AP Statistics May 1 – 5

AP Exams begin this week!  I know most of you are taking multiple exams and will miss class at least once before the AP Stat exam.  You must complete 3 full practice tests before Thursday, May 11.  Each day we will do either a multiple choice or FRQ section of a practice test.  These WILL count as a grade so you need to take them seriously!  If you are present 6 out of the 8 days you should be able to complete 3 full practice exams without having to make anything up.  If you miss more than two classes, you will have to come in before or after school and make up those assignments, so think about if it’s worth it to miss class.

Also, homework for the next week and a half is to work out of your BARRON’s book – specifically the five full length practice tests in the back of the book.  Your final exam questions will come from those!!

Accelerated Geometry/Algebra II May 1-5

This week will be in full review mode for the Geometry EOC.  Each day we will focus on a particular unit.  Most of the practice problems are out of review books so I don’t have electronic copies.  If you are absent, check with me the next day or send me an email and I can try to email you the pages.  They will be pictures of the pages and you will need to print them out.

You will also be doing USA Test Prep assignments for homework.

Monday, May 1 – Probability   HW:  USA Test Prep

Tuesday, May 2 – Right Triangle Trig – HW:  USA Test Prep

Wednesday, May 3 -Similarity, Congruence  HW:  USA Test Prep

AP Stat Exam Tips

Please read through these tips…

AP Stat Exam Tips:

There are good tips on here for answering FRQs and some topic-specific things to watch out for!!  It’s worth the read!!    The only thing that is NOT correct on the tips page is there is NO penalty for getting multiple choice question wrong.  They used to do that, but don’t any more.  Answer ALL the multiple choice questions, even if you have to guess on a few!!!
