We understand that the Draft AP Statistics CED announcement has prompted questions regarding the suitability of existing resources, specifically The Practice of Statistics for the AP® Course, 7th Edition (TPS 7e), for this potential curriculum. For a brief overview of the proposed changes, we recommend checking out this blog from our friends at Stats Medic. 

Our authors will soon share additional insights on the proposed changes, but until then, rest assured: TPS 7e will be compatible with the updated CED and remains the top choice for AP® Statistics.

Why TPS 7e remains the premier choice allowing you to adopt with confidence:

  • Full Coverage of the new CED: Despite the restructuring, which mostly consists of removing content, TPS 7e's comprehensive coverage extends beyond the outlined changes, ensuring all topics are thoroughly addressed.
  • Proven Pedagogical Approach: Authored by experienced AP® Statistics educators Daren Starnes and Josh Tabor, TPS 7e integrates a pedagogy that champions statistical thinking and problem-solving, aligning with the CED's move towards application-oriented learning.
  • Comprehensive Support: Anticipating these shifts, we will create correlation guides, author videos, and additional resources tailored to these updates, making TPS 7e a seamless fit for the proposed updated CED. These will be made and shared with adopters well in advance of when they will need them. 
    • We will also be doing this for the Updated and Classic TPS 6e editions
    • We provided similar support during the 2019 CED release—so much so that teachers are still using those resources. 
  • Robust Digital Platform: With Achieve, our enhanced digital platform, educators and students gain access to an extensive homework and assessment system, video support, and more. Achieve's user-friendly interface makes it ideal for working with any curriculum changes. 

Why shouldn’t I wait for TPS 8e? 

We highly recommend the adoption of The Practice of Statistics, 7e instead of waiting for future editions. The current CED is still a work in progress and is subject to further modifications. It is far from finalized. While the target launch is set for the 2026-2027 academic year, delays akin to those experienced with recently updated AP® Psychology and AP® Physics 1 & 2 CEDs could happen, pushing implementation to as far as 2028-2029. By adopting TPS 7e now, you will gain access to a top-tier program fully aligned with the current CED for at least the next two years. Moreover, BFW will provide all essential tools and resources to seamlessly transition TPS 7e users to ANY future updated CED for the duration of your adoption.
