You did it! You finally finished the content! So what if you only spent two days on linear regression…it’s time to start reviewing for the AP Stats Exam! Whether you have 5 days or 5 weeks to review, we hope that you can use the Stats Medic AP Exam Review Course to help your students prepare for the AP Statistics Exam (sneak preview can be found here).
If you are interested in signing up all of the students in your class, complete this form and we will send you a quote.
Based on feedback from teachers from previous years, teachers are using the Review Course in three different ways:
1. Use class time for the Stats Medic Review Course
If you want to make sure that all of your students are watching the videos and trying the practice problems, build the review course right into your class time. Have students use laptops or their phones in class to work their way through the videos and practice questions on the review course.
Here is what the teacher would need to do to prepare:
Create a reasonable schedule for students based on how much time you have before the exam. We will have examples of these schedules coming soon.
Make copies of the video skeleton notes, practice multiple choice questions, and practice free response questions + rubrics. You will get access to these files once you have your class signed up.
At the end of each week, we have students hand in their completed skeleton notes, completed MC practice, and their completed (and self graded) free response questions.
2. Assign the Stats Medic Review Course as homework
Over the next few months, Stats Medic will be releasing 10 review activities that you can do in your classes. Use class time for these awesome review activities and then ask students to complete assignments from the Review Course as homework. If you go this route, sticking to a schedule is critical, and you must hold students accountable for completing work. You will not be able to monitor student progress digitally, so you can have students hand in their completed skeleton notes, completed MC practice, and their completed (and self graded) free response questions as often as you feel is needed.
3. Offer the Stats Medic Review Course as an optional support
Maybe you already have your exam review routine dialed in. You have a set of activities that you know is going to get students ready. But there are always students that can benefit by having additional resources outside the classroom. The Review Course can be completed by individual students with a go-at-your-own-pace schedule. This way, students can spend extra time and energy in the areas they need the most help (probability… we know). While we have found that the accountability of doing the Review Course as a whole class has been most effective, it can work for individual students who have the motivation to put in the work.
