AP Statistics

  • Students that are going to a four year-college and majoring in anything other than math, engineering, or physics. If  you are required to take a mathematics course in college, it will most likely be Statistics.

What if I don’t want to take math next year?

If you have any plans to attend any type of post-secondary institution, you need four years of high school math. All post-secondary institutions require a math placement test and some math credits.  Students who take four years of math are less likely to pay for non-credit bearing courses in college and more likely to be successful in school.
