Posted 03/02/2021 by Curtis Brown (@cbmathguy)

This school year, Texas Instruments (TI) has teamed up with author and master teacher, Daren Starnes, to provide live AP® Statistics sessions via YouTube geared toward teachers and students alike.

These sessions will contain content, data and questions that are directly related to the Big Ideas in the “AP® Statistics Course and Exam Description.” The content will be original, unique problems and data sets that Starnes has written for our Office Hours series to deepen student and teacher content knowledge. Starnes, a former reader for the exam, will offer tried-and-true strategies to help you and your students succeed.

The YouTube Live “AP® Statistics Office Hours With Daren Starnes” begin Monday, Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. Eastern time (6 p.m. Central time). You won’t want to miss it!

Below is our schedule of topics:

Nov. 2: Exploring One- and Two-Variable Data (CED Units 1 and 2)

Dec. 3: Collecting Data, Probability, Random Variables and Sampling Distributions (Units 3, 4 and 5)
