Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
The professor is open-minded, friendly, patient and respectful; he is always willing to help both in class and afterwards comparing to other professors who are reluctant to dedicate time after classes.
Course highlights:
I learned statistics far more readily comparing to my peers in other co-classes. I witnessed that many of them had difficulties in subject by having misunderstandings. Thanks to Professor Abraham, I acquired knowledge of statistics with little effort, but mastering in it.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Always do extra practice. Don`t feel lazy if you want to succeed and get advise from your professor. Visit tutoring- it doesn`t make you shame since you want to learn.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course because it is a rewarding experience. It pushes you to understand just how statistics works and can actually apply to many things in life. I saw how it helped me in a Biology course I took the following semester when we had to do punnet squares. I was proud to be able to complete them with ease. This class may be a challenge, but if someone who was always terrible in math can do it, so can you!
Course highlights:
I gained experience in the meticulous calculations of understanding populations, hypotheses, outliers and much more. I had no idea how much these topics applied to our daily lives. One example would be voting polls. One highlight for me was learning hypotheses and how to examine them.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
My advice for this course is to study very hard and pay close attention. This is one class you can't afford to be distracted in at any moment. Concentrate more on what the professor is doing and less with taking notes so that you can see all the steps he took to get the answer (there are a lot of steps and formulas). You can then look in the text book later to review and take your notes. The text book is very helpful, but it takes concentration so take your time reading. Lastly, do the practice problems! they will help you remember what to do.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend the class, because I think it is a great way to help you improve your knowledge on mathematics, especially those who are going on to economics or math majors. Before taking the course, I would advice students to review concepts such as average, mean, median, and range, because those concepts will be discussed heavily in the statistics.
Course highlights:
After taking elementary statistics, not only did my math improved, but also I learned how to using statistical data to apply to your e, even outside the classroom, for example, examining opinion polls, or looking at graphs measuring the success of a company, just to name a few.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
To always read the assigned text material before coming into the classroom, and frequently attend tutoring sessions.
