    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As for me, statistics was the kind of math that I actually found interest in and could learn to do. I'm not a stellar math student by any means, and I realize that math is not everybody's subject. I feel that statistics is a less intimidating form of math that students are more able to adapt to and really enjoy the curriculum they are studying.

    Course highlights:

    I personally really enjoyed probability! Probability is a rather large section of statistics, and I liked the fact that there were so many different ways to teaching/comprehending the concept of probability and what it exactly means. From rolling a dice to gathering your own survey data, there is a kind of probability that will interest you and even sometimes be fun to carry out!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep an open mind! I understand how math has this stigma of being extremely difficult and hard to comprehend, but believe me: if I can do it, so can you! Don't shut down the idea of the class just because it's a math course. Give it a try; I really believe you will learn more than you think!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was difficult but I passed due to the fact that my teacher taught us effectively and I studied outside of class.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this course, I learned how to gather and decipher different statistics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For this course, I did the WebAssign homework at least 24 hours early which allowed for extra credit. This brought my homework grade above 100% which helped me tremendously in the course. It also helped me to buy the book ($25) and do the practice problems in each section before any quiz/ test.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She's very good at explaining the problems clearly, and covering all test material in depth before exams. Webassign and attendance are the keys to passing her class successfully. As long as you show up, take detailed notes of what she writes on the board, and make sure to get webassign done, you're good to go. She also offers a good amount of extra credit.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course I learned a lot about excel and how to operate it. I learned how to use Excel on Microsoft to do stats problems for me. I learned basic statistics, and how to graph accurately.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just make sure that you do all of your webassign homework. Don't miss more than three classes, because attendance is a big thing for her. And go to all of her exam reviews the night before the exams.
