Stats Medic Skeleton Notes for AP Daily Videos

Updated: Sep 12, 2023

The College Board now has AP Daily videos available for every topic covered in the Course and Exam Description (CED). We have heard from many teachers who really appreciate having this resource available, but have been struggling to hold students accountable for actually watching the videos (do any of your students hit play and then go back to video games?) We are hoping that the Stats Medic Skeleton Notes are the solution! Here is a document that shows which CED topics are covered in every Stats Medic lesson.


Special thanks to all-star math educator Dr. Renee Hoard (rhoard@garesa.org) for helping us to create this incredible resource. Renee currently works as a Math Mentor at West Georgia RESA.


What is AP Daily?


The AP Daily videos are short 5 - 9 minute videos found in AP Classroom that cover all of the content in the AP Statistics course. The videos are presented by 8 AP Statistics teachers from around the country (including one Stats Medic!) Most often, the videos present content within some context, rather than simply stating formulas and definitions. These videos are intended to be a supplement to what you are already doing with students (and not a replacement for what you do with students!)


How Can We Use AP Daily?

  1. As a warm-up. Teachers could assign students to watch these videos the night before learning the content in class. This would provide students with some basic knowledge of the content that would help them to be successful in the lesson the next day.

  2. To summarize a lesson. The videos could be part of a homework assignment after the content has been taught in class. This gives students an opportunity to solidify their learning from class and sets them up to be able to apply their learning.

  3. As a review at the end of a chapter. The videos are short enough that students could watch all of them the night before the test, or even better, watch the videos for just the content where they need the most help.

So far, we have opted for strategy #3. We have been offering them up to students as an optional support, rather than a required assignment. This way, students can spend time and energy with the content that they decide they need more help with.


Extra Details

  • Teachers have the option of assigning the videos to students. Simply click on the video, and then click the "Assign"button in the upper right corner. Teachers then have the ability to see which students have viewed the video (students must view 95% of the video for it to be counted as completed). Better yet, have students hand in the completed Stats Medic skeleton notes!

  • When clicking the "Assign" button, you can also "Copy Link"so that you can share the video with students. The URL can be pasted in Google Classroom, Canvas, Schoology, etc.


Stats Medic Skeleton Notes


To help your students stay focused (and to hold them accountable), give them the skeleton notes that follow precisely along with each of the videos. Here is what you need to know:

  • Students will need to fill in the blanks, often requiring them to record important vocabulary, calculations, or interpretations.

  • As best as we could, we tried to fit these on two pages, so they can be printed front/back on one piece of paper.

  • They have been designed so that students can later use these notes to study, without having to look back at the video.



But I Need Videos for the Stats Medic Lessons!


We do have a full library of videos with Luke or Lindsey taking students through entire Stats Medic lessons, from the Activity all the way through the Check Your Understanding. For more information, check out the Stats Medic Video Subscription.
