    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it allows students going into research to understand the value of statistics in everyday life. Most students fail to believe that statistics will be used commonly after school, this course proves the falsehood of this claim. Statistics is an invaluable component in research to test the significance of a test or data set which can be used to disprove/prove a claim.

    Course highlights:

    The course had several applications to content other than statistics. We commonly interacted with the sociology and writing courses to integrate our learning. This was more than a statistics class considering it allowed us to gain a perspective of the relevance of statistics in the real world and its application in other subjects. However, in this course students must place a great deal of time into the assignments and studying. The content is cumulative, thus the tests get harder as the semester progresses and require more studying. Students must place a great deal of effort into studying, talking to professors, and homework in order to succeed.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend always attending office hours immediately after students begin to have confusion. Since the content is cumulative, if students fail to understand a concept it is extremely difficult to catch up if the student does not immediately seek help. Also, I would recommend practicing the course material in groups because it can be frustrating to study alone if a student gets stuck. Having friends to help allows those who do not understand to find a new way to approach difficult problems from the input of others.
