Amazing AP Stats Promotional Video

One of the fastest growing courses at Athena High School is AP Statistics.  Students have elected to take this course because of its rigor, relevance to the real world, and its engaging teacher, Mrs. Magin.  Over the past three years, Mrs. Magin has promoted the course and recruited students to enrich their learning about the world of statistics.  Students have expressed how the course is both challenging and fun.  In collaboration with Mrs. Magin, students from the Class of 2011 created a promotional video to show others what the class is about.  This video is very well done, informative, funny, and will certainly be a tool used this winter when students are choosing their courses for next year.

Practical Strategy: Promote and educate students about the many electives at Athena.  The use of an elective fair, videos, or classroom visits help to create a buzz for students to sign up for a class.  Many times students don’t sign up for a particular course because they don’t know about it.
