Mr. Rogers' AP Statistics

Specifications for AP Stats Investigations

Each student will turn in a Word or Excel File for each investigation. These are to be turned in and kept in the Statistics Investigations folder of your student Home Directory. The files from the various investigations should also be stored on a USB thumb drive or other media. We will be returning to some of the investigations later in the year for further analysis. If you do not save the data, you will have to re-generate it

Check out Articles by Mr. Rogers:

Insultingly Stupid Movie Physics is one of the most humorous, entertaining, and readable physics books available, yet is filled with all kinds of useful content and clear explanations for high school, 1st semester college physics students, and film buffs.

It explains all 3 of Newton's laws, the 1st and 2nd laws of thermodynamics, momentum, energy, gravity, circular motion and a host of other topics all through the lens of Hollywood movies using Star Trek and numerous other films.

If you want to learn how to think physics and have a lot of fun in the process, this is the book for you!
