AP Statistics with Mr. Murphy
Mr. Murphy teaches AP Statistics.
This math class has the power to make you change the way you look at data and graphs. Students can draw interesting conclusions from studies and challenge people’s false intuitions about probability and more.
In a practical sense, it helps students spot dishonest or misleading numbers, badly gathered data and extrapolated graphs in poorly conducted experiments. It is the most useful math class to take if students want to be a math major.
Students might be taking the class later in life, so taking it in now at Del Val can help you.
Some topics include experimental design, analyzing data, practical probability and inference. This class has applications in psychology, sociology and any science that deals with experiments.
