Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Because the professor makes everything simple and the work is beneficial, anyone could learn from it! It offers things about mathematics that people would never think they would need. From simple things like predicting sales to determining the probability of how many children will be born in the United States, anyone can benefit.
Course highlights:
I learned about the moving average model of order one. This was a project that my professor and I worked on. He wanted me to get some experience on my resume and to see how what I was learning in class could be effective in the real world. We studied how to predict the probability of monotones in a graph. Using a confidence interval and the width of the interval, we were able to determine the range of decimal places in which the monotone would occur. Whether it was a down monotone or an upward monotone, we were trying to predict where they would occur on the number line.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
I would advise every student to speak with the professor. He really enjoys explaining the concepts to every student no matter how many questions he has. Once you understand a concept, the following ones become even easier. Don't worry about trying to memorizing formulas. After doing several practices problems, familiarize yourself with the concept of the formula. Think about what it could be used for, how it could be used, and what are the ways it cannot be used. Be sure to come to every single class.
