Chapter Holds AP Statistics Competition

1 August 2013 149 views No Comment

The Orange County Long Beach Chapter held its first high-school AP Statistics competition June 1 at the University of California, Irvine. The turnout included 146 students presenting 57 posters to the team of judges. The entries were thought provoking, and seven teams came away with a prize of $25.

Concurrent with the competition, the chapter held a tutorial session for those teachers who accompanied their students. The session was led by chapter members representing the special interest group in statistics education. Topics included data resources for teachers (Jessica Utts); technology for AP Statistics—JMP, Minitab, TI-Nspire (Lee Kucera-Capistrano); test development committee news (Paul Rodriguez); and what the chapter does to help AP Statistics teachers (local members).

The success of the competition was made possible by coordinators Utts and Kucera, logistics expert Rosemary Busta, Chapter President Bob Newcomb; and coordinator of judging and scoring Stacey Hancock.

Donations for the event were accepted from Texas Instruments, Allergan, Minitab, JMP, and Barrons.
