Ms.+Prater%27s+Website
Welcome to Statistics!
This is an AP course.  Students are expected to be self-movitivated and complete their homework and do assigned reading.  Since we complete the course by mid April, we must utilize class time for learning the material, not re-teaching because a student failed to read the work.   Please come into C9 at nutrition or stay at lunch if you need extra help.  Email me and I will accommodate you the best I can.

Students will need a TI 83 or 84 calculator.
 
I recommend that you purchase the AP review book, Five Steps to a Five, by Duane Hinders.  You can purchase a used one online for about $8.
 
 
Below, you will find the homework as it is assigned.  Check for links on the side to email me, or to access your grades.
