The class that uninformed students take in attempt to avoid AP Calculus.

Students begin the year with high hopes, learning about simple probability distributions and elementary data calculations. Around the time the "oh, I don't need to try in this class" attitude sets in, the course picks up and students are slammed with the first difficult concept of the course: Proprties of Linear Regression. While many students can handle this unit, many fall behind and begin contemplating suicide. As the class progresses into Experimental Design and probability models, students are overwhelmed with continuous stress and tears. The concepts are too abstract and students may begin feeling as though the work is pointless. Around this time, they give up.

Shortly after the giving up phase, the class takes a turn to the topic of Inference, which no one actually knows anything about because everyone's sleeping. Confidence Intervals and T-Tests are emphasized. The dreaded Chi-Square tests end the course before the halting AP Exam, and the students are pounded with THE most difficult and grueling AP Examination offered and again get a final taste of how hopeless they really are. After the AP Exam, AP Stats students generally fall to become depressed because this class has quite frankly screwed up their minds. They begin noticing flaws in data all around the world and can't fathom exactly WHY they care.. they have been brainwashed by the one, and the only.. AP Stats.

Jake: Hey dude why are you so down?

Ryan: I just got out of AP Statistics class. Today we did Confidence Intervals for the difference of two proportions and my mind's in a whirl and I can't stop thinking about how my suicide will effect the standard deviation of the US life expectancy.. And the spread of the districution will become skewed right and...

A laughably easy class, most who take it are those too afraid to take calc so yeah, 90% of the class are math-impaired idiots. The purpose of stats is to be a joke class like apes. The tests are taken directly from the internet so enter in a few key words the night before and you already have the answer key. A very large majority of the class cheats on the tests which may be the reason for the incredibly high averages aside from its "difficulty". And plus, there's no homework. The only drawback is that the class does almost no preparation for the AP exam in May so unless you actually treat the class like a real one (which is totally unnecessary for the class itself) you're basically screwed.

Typical AP Statistics conversations:

Student A: OMG that test was so hard! How did you get a perfect score on it?

Student B: It's online...I typed in "chi-squared regression test" on google last night and I found the answer key..."

Student A: sh*t

Student C: I'm wondering if I should take stats instead of calc. How was the class? How did you do on it?

Student D: I got A's both semesters but I got a 2 on the exam...
