I am a teacher at a private school where we have quite a few students who take the calculus AP tests before their senior year. Because of this, we have students who are unsure what to do as seniors. We do have a math elective and a statistics course, but nothing like Statistics AP. I teach AB Calc, but would not at this point feel comfortable teaching AP Stats. I subscribed to this list to find out more about the test and what others teachers would be doing this year. In the near future, I hope that we will have AP Stats taught by my department head who specialized in statistics in college.
Enough with the introduction, now for the problem. I have a student in my Advanced Math Concepts elective, who passed the BC test with a 5, who wants to do AP Statistics independent study. He is a very bright junior, who would be the one who could handle it on his own if anyone could. I would love to hear your opinions on whether this would be a realistic option. If it is, I would like to know of a good textbook to recommend to him, as well as good AP style questions. All I have at this point is 5 horrible weeks of Statistics at UCLA, and the College Board's description of AP Stats from the internet, and a very motivated student. Please help.
