AP Statistics | Non-AP Stats | Live & Self-Paced | 24-25

Blue Tent AP Statistics

Our live online AP Statistics class for high school homeschoolers is also offered in a self-paced format. Non-AP Statistics is only offered as self-paced.

  • Live AP Statistics Class: Students meet with their instructor and classmates for 75 minutes every other Thursday. These live sessions consist of small-group collaboration and specific multiple choice & free response examples offered by the instructor focused on AP exam text prep.

  • Self-Paced AP Statistics Classes: Students cover the same material as the live class, but all instruction is delivered by teacher-produced videos.

  • Self-Paced Non-AP Statistics: Students cover similar material as AP Statistics, focusing on the most important seven chapters of the class textbook. All AP-oriented test prep is removed. All instruction is delivered by teacher-produced videos.

  • Optional Live Study Hall: In addition to the live classes, the instructor will offer a weekly study hall. The study hall is available to all students, including those taking the self-paced class and can be utilized in two ways:

    • Drop in. Students can drop in to a Zoom study hall at any time for a quick question.

    • Homework time. They can log in to a Zoom study hall--with microphones muted and videos on or off--to work on their math homework and then unmute to get immediate help when questions arise.
