## This is an Outline of a General Advance-Placement (AP) Statistics Curriculum

### Outline

Each topic discussed in the SOCR AP Curricumum should contain the following subsections:

**Motivation/Problem**: A real data set and fundamental challenge.**Approach**: Models & strategies for solving the problem, data understanding & inference.**Model Validation**: Checking/affirming underlying assumptions.**Computational Resources**: Internet-based SOCR Tools (including offline resources, e.g., tables).**Examples**: computer simulations and real observed data.**Hands-on activities**: Step-by-step practice problems.

### Introduction to Statistics

#### 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.
