Course Overview:
This course wasn't required for me to take, but it was recommended since it fulfilled one of my General Education requirements. I would recommend taking this course especially for people who don't have a strong suit in math courses because this statistics course doesn't exactly relate to math, it's more about real world scenarios and vocabulary.
Course highlights:
The highlights of this course would be it's overall difficulty. The course itself isn't very difficult as long as you really try to understand what you're learning and go to the lectures and recitations. I learned a lot about statistics in the real world, something most math classes don't do. I also learned how to interpret statistics when I would see them in the news, and often times be able to realize those statistics don't make sense.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Advice I would give to students taking this course is to take it only if you aren't necessarily a big fan of math as a subject. There's really not a whole lot of calculations until the end of second quarter, it's most interpreting what you're looking at. Another piece of advice is to go to lecture and read the assigned book (even if just before the tests), because lecture is incredibly helpful to clear things up and you'll find that you'll understand things if you read the book.
