The Beyond AP Statistics (BAPS) workshop at the annual Joint Statistical Meetings* is for AP Statistics teachers and consists of enrichment material just beyond the basic AP syllabus. The course is divided into four sessions led by noted statisticians. Topics in recent years have included experimental design, topics in survey methodology, multiple regression, logistic regression, what to do when assumptions are not met, and randomization tests.

A pass to visit the JSM exhibit hall, refreshments, handouts, and a certificate of participation from the ASA certifying professional development hours are included. Optional graduate credit also is available.

*The Joint Statistical Meetings are the largest annual gathering of statisticians, where thousands from around the world meet to share advances in statistical knowledge.
