Unit 1: Introduction to Statistical Analysis
Every discipline has its own unique vocabulary and introductory concepts. In Unit 1, you will be introduced to several topics that you have studied in previous math or science courses. But be cautious about skimming through the material! You will see these topics (and some new ones) introduced in a statistical context, and this treatment will lay the foundation for the rest of the course. Pay special attention to the concepts of population versus sample. Commit the symbols for means and standard deviations to memory. Don't worry about memorizing the formulas; they will be provided to you on a standardized formula sheet for use on checkpoints, assessments, and the AP exam.
Completing this unit should take you approximately 5 hours.
