Welcome to what’s going to be your favorite class at Wheeler ever! (If not, you are entitled to a full refund of your class fee.)
First, I’d like to show you around my blog.
Every day (I hope), I will update this blog so that you can see what topic we covered in class that day, what the homework assignment is, and where to go for additional help. Last semester, I missed posting 2-3 days, so I’m not perfect, but I will try to make this site as useful as possible. The assignments will be posted in this running blog, most recent posts on top. I will post for AP Statistics (AP Stat) every day and as needed for AP Seminar (probably every 2-3 days–other days I will just copy the previous blog entry).
There are also tabs near the top of this page that may be useful for additional help. There is an “about me” page where you can go to bore yourself with details about your teacher. There is also a page for classroom documents. On that page, you can find syllabi, classroom rules and other general documents. Both classes have tabs for more resources. Currently, I have a lot of stuff for Statistics, but not as much for AP Seminar (since this is the first time it has been taught at Wheeler). Finally, the What’s Up? tab lets you know about approaching tests and project due dates.
Today, I gave out a ton of papers for you to fill out use. They are:
Syllabus: AP Statistics Syllabus F19
Voluntary survey for your parents: APSTAT Parent Survey
Questionnaire to help me get to know you: Who Am I
(The required contract for AP classes) AP Contract
We also looked at how statistics are used to prove or disprove claims. See: Smelling-Parkinsons-Disease
Homework is to get the papers signed and return them. Also, PLEASE BRING YOUR NOTEBOOKS.
Today I gave you all sorts of fun stuff:
The AP Contract AP Contract
The syllabus: Spring 2019 Syllabus
A Parent Survey APSeminar Parent Survey
Who Am I Sheet. Who Am I
We also got started with the classroom computers. Remember, you may bring your own computer if you wish.
Homework is to get your supplies and have the paperwork signed.
