===[[AP_Statistics_Curriculum_2007_Preface| Preface]]===
 
This is an Internet-based E-Book for advance-placement (AP) statistics educational curriculum. The e-book is initially developed by the UCLA [[SOCR | Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR)]], however, any statistics instructor, researcher or educator is encouraged to contribute to this effort and improve the content of these learning materials.

===Chapter I: Introduction to Statistics===
 
====[[AP_Statistics_Curriculum_2007_IntroVar | The Nature of Data & Variation]]====
 
No mater how controlled the environment, the protocol or the design, virtually any repeated measurement, observation, experiment, trial, study or survey is bound to generate data that varies because of intrinsic (internal to the system) or extrinsic (due to the ambient environment) effects. How many natural processes or phenomena in real life can we describe that have an exact mathematical closed-form description and are completely deterministic? How do we model the rest of the processes that are unpredictable and have random characteristics?
 
 
 
====[[AP_Statistics_Curriculum_2007_IntroUses |Uses and Abuses of Statistics]] ====
 
Statistics is the science of variation, randomness and chance. As such, statistics is different from other sciences, where the processes being studied obey exact deterministic mathematical laws. Statistics provides quantitative inference represented as long-time probability values, confidence or prediction intervals, odds, chances, etc., which may ultimately be subjected to varying interpretations. The phrase ''Uses and Abuses of Statistics'' refers to the notion that in some cases statistical results may be used as evidence to seemingly opposite theses. However, most of the time, common [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logic principles of logic] allow us to disambiguate the obtained statistical inference.
 
 
 
====[[AP_Statistics_Curriculum_2007_IntroDesign | Design of Experiments]] ====
 
Design of experiments is the blueprint for planning a study or experiment, performing the data collection protocol and controlling the study parameters for accuracy and consistency. Data, or information, is typically collected in regard to a specific process or phenomenon being studied to investigate the effects of some controlled variables (independent variables or predictors) on other observed measurements (responses or dependent variables). Both types of variables are associated with specific observational units (living beings, components, objects, materials, etc.)
