Honors Statistics




Course Description:

The Honors Statistics course is designed to introduce students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. Students will be exposed to several broad conceptual themes of statistics such as exploring data, planning a study, probability, modeling and anticipating patterns, and statistical inference. Students will learn standard statistical terms and techniques through presentation of real world cases. Technology will be an integral part of the course. Students will be expected to use the TI-84 graphing calculator to perform their analyses, to present their findings, and to investigate topics visually.

Broward County Schools Attendance Policy:

A student who has had at least five unexcused absences, or absences for which the reasons are unknown, within a calendar month, or 10 unexcused absences, or absences for which the reasons are unknown, within a 90-calendar-day period, may be exhibiting a pattern of non-attendance (F.S.1003.26 (1) (b)) and the School Board of Broward County, Policy 5.5.

This course is fast-paced and demanding. One topic builds on another. Daily participation is a must. You are responsible for all material presented in class, present or absent, including announcements about course procedures. Exams, quizzes, and homework may include questions on material presented only in class, so performance on these indirectly reflects attendance. I do not reteach previous lessons. If you are absent, it is your responsibility to review the material covered, complete the assignments missed and if you require additional help see me or attend tutoring after school.

Tardies – In accordance with ATC student handbook.
