CLEMSON – The department of mathematical sciences hosted the seventh annual Clemson AP Statistics Practice Exam on Saturday (May 5).

 Almost 200 students from 15 area high schools participated in the event, which provided the students with a free mock exam experience in preparation for the upcoming AP Statistics exam.

The students also had a chance to explore the Clemson campus, meet several Math Sciences faculty, and learn more about the programs offered in the College of Science.

The exam was scored on-site by participating faculty and AP teachers, which allowed students to walk out of the event with a projected AP score. Each AP teacher was paired with an experienced AP grader during the scoring, thus providing a great professional development experience for these teachers.

This event has garnered national recognition for Clemson University within the statistics education community. Clemson faculty lead the efforts to write a new practice exam every year, which is then administered by at least six other institutions.
