Three of them received 4's and 5's on their AP Exam, after I suggested a yearlong curriculum, helped with after-school discussions, and created and graded unit exams and practice AP questions to assess progress. Following my college studies, I was invited multiple times to guest lecture at UC Berkeley on two different topics in applied statisti" less...
