This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Not only is it a good foundation for future statistics courses, but it also is a fun class that exercises your brain by connecting multiple topics together.
Course highlights:
I learned how many of the topics in the class were related, especially the strong parallels between discrete and continuous distributions such as how a geometric distribution to a negative binomial distribution is similar to that of an exponential one to a gamma distribution. Also, I enjoyed seeing how just a simple rephrasing of a question can drastically change how you approach the problem.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
I would definitely reccomend the course, but do understand that it does take a significant amount of time to study and review and connect all the topics together.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I highly recommend this class because it encourages your brain to think creatively. The formulas/concepts can be applied in so many different ways/applications.
Course highlights:
Some skills you will develop alongside probability: combinatoric math, review of calculus, discrete math, game theory-esque thinking.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Attend SLC (student learning center). Create own problems. Solve many different type of problems. Do as many mock exams as you can find. Read your notes carefully. Study with others.
