Resources for teaching AP stats course -Reply

I have been using the Rossman text "Workshop Statistics" and have
found it to be a remarkable experience for my students. I supplement
with Moore's"Basic Practice of Statistics" which is a very readable, user
friendly text.

I am not sure as to how comletely these two coincide with the AP
Statistic curricukum but since I doubt that many colleges will give AP
credit for this new course for the first few years, I'm happy to present
this course in this manner. My students are involved and interested.
Many of their parents had warned them that Statistics was the most
difficult and unpleasant college course that they had to take and are
surprised at how positive their children feel about the material.

Also, In the DRAFT< DRAFT< DRAFT Guide to teaching the AP course
published by the College Board, on if the proposed courses of study
recommends this approach.

Hope that this is helpful
