    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this course beacause it's not like the math that most are used to. It's a lot different from geometry and calculus, which is why it was a bit difficult for me. I believe that I would have done better in a calculus class than I did in Statisitics.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this course I have learned how much probablity is actually used in the real world, and how useful it would be to know what I am doing in stats.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely to write things down. By that I mean homework assigned. Professor Meyers doesnt require that you do your homework but in order to pass the tests and the class itself, it is really important that you do. Also taking really good notes and doing the examples over and over really helped me understand what i need to be doing to get the problems correct.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Math is not my strongest subject but Dustin Acres was the best math professor that I have had. He thoroughly explains everything and allows a notecard on all exams which was extremely helpful for me.

    Course highlights:

    The course highlights basic statistics and percentages and introduces probability. I also learned how to use my graphing calculator and program new features on it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course was tough but if you show up to class and take good notes it is manageable. Ask questions and don't leave early.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The reason why I fave a four out of five rating is because this Statistics class is a hard one. If you're like me and only want A's in your transcript, this class will be the one to challenge that. In my high school transcript I received a B in Stats. and college doesn't make it any better. It challenges what you know and probability. It isn't like algebra. On the other hand, the Professor is great! He is very personable with the class and I love that connection with the professor. I hope this helps.

    Course highlights:

    In this class, I've certainly learned prioritization. I took this class in my first semester in college and it really gives a wake up call, coming from a high school where they basically said, "You're a senior, so we're going to make it easy for you.", but that also depends on the classes you took your senior year. Stats. isn't for everyone. If you taken it during high school and you totally understood it, go ahead and take this class in college. If you struggled in high school, or not sure if you're into probability-kind of mathematics, I do not recommend this for you because it will definitely challenge you. If you're ready for a challenge, though, and want to see what you want to do, go right on ahead!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Like I said earlier, this class (amongst other classes adding on top) is difficult and taught me about prioritization in college. So, in making decisions on what classes to take, what classes to check off your Gen. Ed. plan, look at your options. Again, if you want a challenge, take this class. If you're not into getting a challenge, I advise going with a different math class. Also, taught to any upperclassmen you know that is a couple years ahead of you and ask what classes they took and what they thought about them. Compare their responses with your goals as well as your experiences, these wise choices will help you go far. Good luck!
