Beyond Advanced Placement Statistics
The Advanced Placement Statistics curriculum covers most of the topics that you would find in a typical
Introductory Statistics textbook. But it doesn't cover everything.
This tutorial fills in some of the gaps. It is designed for students who have completed the
Advanced Placement Statistics tutorial.
About the Tutorial
This tutorial covers topics from Introductory Statistics that are missing from the
AP Statistics curriculum, such as:
 Probability basics. The statistician's knowledge base should include familiarity
with sets and subsets, combinations and permutations, and Bayes' theorem.
 Small samples. When the sample size is small, how can you define a confidence interval
for a proportion? How can you test a hypothesis?
 Distributions. Many introductory texts cover the following probability distributions:
hypergeometric, multinomial, poisson, and fdistribution.
 Statistical power. This tutorial explains how to compute the statistical power of a
hypothesis test.
How to Use This Tutorial
Individual lessons are accessible through the table of contents, which can be
found in the vertical column on the left side of the page. You should work through lessons
in the order in which they appear; because some lessons build on

Additional Helpful Resources
As you progress through the tutorial, take advantage
of the following helpful resources.

Analytical tools. Stat Trek provides a variety of analytical tools 
online statistical tables and probability calulators  to take the drudgery
out of statistical computations. The tutorial will alert you to these tools,
all of which are free.

Sample problems. Most of the lessons include sample problems. The sample
problems test your knowledge. They also illustrate shortcuts and solutions
to common statistics problems.

Online help. Stat Trek's online
