The 2009 AP Statistics Reading is quickly approaching. The reading will be held in Louisville, KY, June 5-11. We are expecting approximately 120,000 exams and planning for a total of 515 readers. Numerous evening activities are planned for the reading: the opening party, new reader (the acorns) gathering, College Board night, Best Practices night, Stats Papers night, and the closing party. A very special evening at the reading is the Professional Night. This yearís speaker will be Tom Moore from Grinnell College. Tom is a national leader in Statistics Education. While at the reading, he will be recognized as the recipient of the 2008 Mu Sigma Rho National Honor Society Statistical Education Award.
If you are a new reader, Jason Molesky has set up a website with very useful information about the reading experience (itís also a great website for experienced readers). The web link is: http://web.mac.com/statsmonkey/APStats_at_LSHS/AP_Reading_FAQ.html. If you havenít signed up to be a reader and are interested, go to the AP Central website and use the online application link to submit your application. If you applied in recent months and havenít received an invitation for 2009, know that you are on the waiting list in the database for future readings.
Iím looking forward to June in Louisville.
