AP Statistics is a college-level high school statistics course offered in the United States through the College Board’s Advanced Placement program1. This year a group of Liger students (23 in total) is challenging themselves to take this college-level course with an intention of also taking the test for college credit. By taking this course I’ve definitely developed different methods to learn effectively independently since I spent a lot of time outside of school learning the math terms and concepts.
Name of Course: Algebra B
Learning Facilitator: Jeff
Number of Students: 12
Dates: August 12-January 16

Course Description: Our group learns about Algebra. We started to learn about negative numbers and positive numbers. First we started to draw a number line about negative numbers and positive numbers. The other thing we do is graphing numbers. It is the biggest thing we need to learn. Sometimes on weekends we have a homework to do from the teacher because we need to work hard on graphing it. Other important areas are solving hard problems. Some of the problems that we can not do we can ask the best teacher. He will not tell you a answer. He will show you a way to do it easier, faster and correctly. The goal is know all the key words and solve a lot of hard problems. Here are the key words: Coordinate Grid means the equation about graphing on the papers. Linear Equations mean that used Y=mx+b to graph on the graph papers. Slope means Y=mx+b and mx is a slope. Intercept means the place that one line and one line touch each other. Variables mean the letters the represent the number. Solve means to do the equation.
Equations mean the questions that the teacher put for the kids to do. But it a math word.
