Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Statistics teaches you how to think in terms of the likelihood of an event happening. This is very useful because throughout the course you learn about the central limit theorem which states that the sampling means approaches a normal distribution as the sample size gets larger. This is important because you can use this information and formulas whenever you need to create a survey of some sort. Your surveys will become much more credible when you use a normal distribution curve because you have provided statistical reliability.
Course highlights:
You learn about a plethora of information, such as different sampling methods, linear regression, how to construct charts to display quantitative information, the central limit theorem, statistical models and the importance of statistics in business.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
The best advice that I can give for this course is to familiarize yourself with the normal distribution curve and how to read a T-score and Z-score chart. Once you are able to learn these two critical concepts, statistics becomes smooth sailing. I would also suggest to find different areas in your life where you can use these skills because they can be very powerful and useful in your professional life.
Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
Professor Chitturi is a great lady who understands the material she's teaching, so she knows which way the students learn better and which ways they do not. She gives us homework online and written once a week and the problems help with the exams. There is two midterms and one final and she gives sample exams to review by yourself and in class. It was one of the easier classes I have ever taken because of the atmosphere the Professor creates. The course itself is basic statistics that all Business major students should learn which will lead you to the next level. The course is also one of the easiest material I've ever had the pleasure learning.
Course highlights:
I learned from the simplest forms of statistics such as histograms to harder forms like least square regression lines, applying your t-score and p-score and compare it to the significance level. The whole course was a journey that I'd be more than glad to learn more about. When hearing about it without learning it, these terms might seem foreign but after taking this course it'll be an easy learn, and also fun, because we get to practice things in class during student activity which we get graded on, but we are allowed to work with friends and classmates.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
It's not a class that you can skip and pass unless you know the material. Anyone new to the subject should attend every class because the professor goes over a lot of material and they are all worth learning. You aren't allowed laptops or cellphones in class so a 1 subject spiral notebook is the best way to go, since you also need to tear pages out to hand them in occasionally, such as homework and student activity. This course is generally going to be 100 minutes long so don't hesitate to bring in a snack in case you get hungry in between. The online homework, you do have to pay for it, and it is worth it because it's 5% of your grade. It might seem small but once you have a high letter grade, the extra 5% can get you the next letter grade as your overall.
