Eight students from Mr. Long's AP Statistics classes competed in Temple University's (Fox School of Business) 2nd Annual Statistics Data Challenge Competition on Thursday, April 27.   Students worked in teams of four to complete a two hour exam created by the Statistics Department at Temple.  

The team of Sachi Patel, Kristen Andes, Bridget Foote, and Julia Trigg finished in second place out of thirty-five teams from other area high schools.  Attached is a photo of the team receiving their second place certificates.

The team of Nick Yang, Jason Zhang, Amit Pampati, and Eli Weisman received an "Honorable Mention" Award, which means their score placed among the top five teams in the competition.  The second photo attached is of this team.

The third photo is of all the Unionville students.

After a walking tour of the campus, the students heard from faculty members, current undergraduate and graduate students about the growing demand for people in the fields of statistics and data analysis.
