AP Cover

Introduction to Statistical Investigations AP Edition is the first AP Statistics book designed from the ground up to follow the GAISE recommendations endorsed by the American Statistical Association. 

To ensure maximum coverage of necessary concepts, every chapter includes content written specifically for the AP Statistics course. Along with AP-exam tips and AP-style exercises found throughout the text, a chapter on preparing for the AP exam is included. Two full-length practice exams (one in the text and one online) as well as a comprehensive set of 300 author videos round out the program.

We use a spiral approach to statistical process through a six-step process of conducting statistical investigations. Students begin to develop an understanding of important and challenging concepts such as the p-value from the beginning. Then deepen their understanding as they encounter such ideas repeatedly in new scenarios where they reconsider and apply the six-step statistical investigation method allowing them to revisit, at deeper and deeper levels each time, the core ideas of statistical inference.
