It occurs to me that the art of hyping a new product, such as this new A.
P. course, includes a catchy slogan. My initial motivation for such an
exercise was to have something appropriate that I could have printed on
pencils, T-shirts, or other "prizes" that I could use to reward my students
for various and sundry class competitions or challenges. I particularly
like Fred Djiang's idea: "A. P. Statistics - a measure of excellence." I
thought it would be fun to sample (heh, heh) the collective wisdom of this
group on this important issue.

Accordingly, I invite readers of this list to submit your candidate(s) for
a slogan that could be used to promote A. P. Statistics (for whatever

If you are currently teaching a section of statistics, you may want to have
a little competition among your students. With apologies to Fred, here is
a list of my candidates, in no particular order, to kick things off:

"A. P. Statistics - more than your average course."

"A. P. Statistics students are significant."

"Statistics students have narrow confidence intervals."

"Statistics students calculate with confidence."

"Sample Statistics!"

"Statistics students perennially pursue population parameters."

"A. P. Statistics - probably a significant experience."

and, of course, I couldn't resist:

"Statisticians do it with confidence."

I look forward to hearing from you!
