Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This is an interesting course. It is math based and at UMass, you can get R1 credit for it. I've never thought of myself to be good at math but this course has pulled me in to want to learn more. Not only will this be beneficial to you in the future, but if you want to apply to any business school, this course is important!
I thought this was going to be a lot of things that I did in high school because of the algebra, and that's only slightly true. In high school, I studied Environmental Science and learned about bell curves. In Stats111, I learned a lot more about bell curves and how to calculate standard deviation, margin of error, and percentiles. This is something I think will be useful to me in the future if I never need to look at data for a future job.

Advice for students:
Don't be afraid to go to your TA to ask for help! My TA was so nice and I think she liked me better because I would go to her whenever I didn't understand something. My RA and I sat next to each other in class so when my TA didn't have office hours, I would go to my RA and we would solve the problem together. Working in a group can make things a lot easier sometimes. One way to secure your knowledge of something is to explain it to someone else. It helps the material click for you.
